Autour is an eyes-free mobile system designed to give blind users a better sense of their surroundings. Although other systems emphasize navigation from one specific location to another, typically accomplished by explicit turn-by-turn instructions, Autour uses spatialized audio to reveal the kind of information that visual cues such as neon signs provide to sighted users. Once users notice a point of interest, additional details are available on demand.

We recommend use of this app on iPhone 4S or later.
What's New in Version 1.6.8
Corrected crash when abridging bus stop texts while using English language. Beam mode history no longer resets at every tick. Added setting for replacing metres by yards or feet. Place details (history) now tells you the address of a place if Google or Foursquare has it. GPS latency is improved. Foursquare ratings are now used for prioritising, partially. Meanwhile, on the server, a transmission problem for part of the accented characters has been corrected.
