The Seeing Eye GPS – APP
Sendero Group has released a new GPS application for people with visual impairment. They worked with the Seeing Eye who train guide dogs. The application is free but the subscription is a bit pricey. It is certainly worth taking a look at. Right now there is no trial version which becomes a problem if you want to make sure it is the right match for yourself or someone you are assessing. The app will only work in the US and Canada but additional locations are being developed. Applications like this provide the opportunity for increased independence and accessibility. They work best when used in combination with our low tech options which work even when they get wet, do not need power or updating!
