Now, when traveling, Google Maps will tell the blind or visually impaired whether it has got out of the way and how much time is left before the next turn and whether there is a pedestrian crossing ahead. The program will accompany the person during the hiking, always telling them about their whereabouts.
App voice messages are similar to public transport ads. People with visual impairments will be able to relax and not th
ink constantly about the route. The feature will be available for Android and iOS. Currently, voice is only available in English and Japanese, and other languages are scheduled to be added later.
