Opening-up the world with technology: Soundscape app for the blind

By April 3, 2018National News

Microsoft have launched Soundscape, an App that makes it easier for people with sight loss to explore our towns and cities.

The App is a result of a collaboration between Guide Dogs and Microsoft. In this unique project, people with sight loss were at the heart of the development of the technology, influencing its design and testing the product.

The result is technology that makes it easier for people with sight loss to explore the world around them. By combining sounds that paint a picture of your surroundings with local information, it will enable people with sight loss to explore towns and cities and make choices about where they go and what they do.
