Thanks for sharing the link and information about Soundscape. That looks like some promising technology just as their Seeing AI is helpful too.

Hello Emily

I have recently reached out to the team at Microsoft working on Soundscape. I am a frequent user and think that Soundscape’s new “recreational experiences” feature would be perfect for this since they could easily be customizable in the event there is construction, or for self-guided tours. More information about Soundscape is at: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/product/soundscape/

Happy to share what all I find out.

Hi everyone.

Our campus does not have names for our sidewalks/paths, which I am assuming your campus does not as well. We are looking to up our game on our accessible map and would like to help map a walking route for persons who are Blind or low vision. We would then hope to be able to send the walking route to the person's phone. Has anyone done this? I would love to get your insights?
