Google Maps is a great help for all of us and now we don’t need to ask anyone regarding any way when we have this best guidance. However, Google Maps is even more beneficial for Visually impaired people. It’s a great initiative that Google is trying to launch something that will facilitate such specially-abled people. Some months back, Google Maps had included voice guidance for people who cant see. New Features to Help Visually Impaired are further improved and it gives more details voice guidance. This enhanced voice guidance will be rolling out to everyone today.
New Features to Help Visually Impaired
There will be different types of verbal announcements that will be beneficial for people who are walking. These features are specially designed for people with vision impairments as they cannot use the already available feature in Google Maps.
But it doesn’t mean that this feature cannot be used or helpful for people who are totally normal. They can equally enjoy these features if they want to enjoy screen-free walking experiences. Detailed voice guidance functions the same way as crosswalks.
This new feature for walking navigation is coming for both Android and iOS. Right now it will support only English and Japanese but soon it will launch other languages for other companies. So you can enjoy this feature by updating your Google Maps, and enabling this feature from the settings menu. All you need to do is to check the navigation option to enable “Detailed voice guidance” under the “Walking options.”
