September 25, 2016
A new smartphone app has been launched by the Perkins School for the Blind in Boston, US, to help local commuters who are blind find bus stops more easily.
The app named BlindWays, not only uses voice navigation to direct users, but also lists landmarks along their route to the bus stop.
The initiative is to help the blind stand in the right spot at the right time and make sure that they are more independent.
Anyone can download the app from Apple's store for free and get alerts about various landmarks and bus stops in Boston, US.
