BridgingApps Newly Updated with COVID-19 Resources: Microsoft Soundscape
BridgingApps just published the following BridgingApps Reviewed App on the site:
Newly updated for COVID-19, this release includes helpful COVID-19 resources and features for Soundscape users, mobility instructors, and the broader community during these challenging times.
Microsoft Soundscape is a wayfinding app for the iOS platform intended to be used by people who are blind or low vision. Unlike commonly used mainstream GPS apps, Soundscape does not provide directions to locations but provides a user information about the world around them using a combination of spoken feedback and positional 3D audio. People with visual impairments can use the app to learn about landmarks around them that they may have been unaware of, combine the app with another that provides directions to a location for extra feedback while on the route, or use the app’s beacon feature to find a specific location or landmark.
