BlindWays is a mobile app that guides blind and low vision bus riders within a white cane’s distance of a bus stop sign using permanent landmark clues. BlindWays navigational clues are contributed by volunteers who can easily submit them while they’re waiting for the bus or walking in the neighborhood. Those clues help BlindWays users navigate easily and independently to work, school and appointments, rather than relying on expensive ride services or favors from friends and family.
BlindWays was inspired by feedback from the blind community. The app was built in collaboration with RaizLabs by accessibility users and experts, many of whom are also visually impaired.
