Check out Soundscape (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/product/soundscape/) by Microsoft. Initially born out of research, Microsoft has developed an accessible wayfinding solution that gives nonvisual travelers auditory feedback as they do point-to-point travel or explore open spaces. The app does a great job of announcing nearby points of interest, intersections and pre-determined destinations. Best of all - it's a free app!

Subject: [Athen] app recommendation

Hello all,

I'm looking for recommendations of way finding apps that visually impaired students can use to program in routes, especially thinking about programming routes across campuses. Also, any other navigational app recommendations would be appreciated as well. Well shucks, as far as that goes, any recommendations for apps for visually impaired students would be good. Of course I know about Read2Go, ?Voice Dream, Go Read, HEARD, COGI and the readers from NLS, Amazon, Apple and B&N. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
