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.

Requires iPhone 4S or later.

What's New

Version 1.7.1

Place Menu wasn't pausing a Shockwave sweep. VoiceOver no longer says "selected" for the last menu item previously clicked. Menus now display correctly on wide screens such as iPhone 6 (with no effect on VoiceOver). Fixed a crash related to the detector for low battery, which was introduced in the last release and didn't affect iPhones older than 4S. Added a way to control the maximum number of places spoken per sweep, which was 15 and now can be increased up to 50. Help for Maximum Distance setting was very outdated, sorry. Lots more info was added about ICADE game pads in the instructions manual (and some more text in the settings menu).

merci beaucoup ..

Tout d'abord: je tiens à vous remercier pour votre excellente application qui aide les aveugles à naviguer dans le Secrétariat Général. 2. Pouvez-vous ajouter de l'arabe à cette application? .. Honnêtement Tana: Personnellement: j'ai essayé cette application dans la rue, j'ai découvert qu'elle est très excellente, mais ne contient pas la langue arabe comme je vous l'ai dit au début .. acceptez-moi, mes meilleures salutations et merci encore :)
