Google Maps Rolls out Voice Guidance Aimed to Help Visually Challenged Navigator

Google Maps

In the advanced era, navigating around is as simple as shopping online. Amidst various modes of transportation and multiple geo-locating apps, locating point B from point A has now become pretty simple. However, the challenges are genuine for the visually impaired, and it can be hard to navigate without any assistance. The Google Maps Company declared the launch of a new feature on World Sight Day that will provide a more detailed voice direction. The new feature will be beneficial for those who cannot rely on their vision or are blind. A Tokyo-based business analyst at Google named Wakana Sugiyama led the initiative who is legitimately blind and uses a walking stick to walk around. ---------
