Greetings from NAB Helpline

ViaOpta Nav

Description of App:

The aim of this app is to allow a blind/low vision person to move
independently thanks to the ability to walk to a destination starting from
their position and have information useful to facilitate their orientation
while moving. This information is provided and adapted taking into
consideration the peculiar needs of a blind/low vision pedestrian and the
app user interface is simple and easy to use.

 The user can enter a destination and get the turn by turn directions from
their current position to that destination. Waypoints can be added to
improve the effectiveness of the calculated route.

 While moving the app will also give information on next junctions as well
as distances and directions.

 At any time the user can query the app for their position and get it in
terms of street address. A list of junctions around the user, with the
corresponding distances and bearings, can also be obtained.
