LazarilloApp the GPS for people who are blind or have low vision, lets you explore the world around you and set up routes.

Lazarillo is a specialized GPS app that brings mobility tools for people who are blind. Using audio messages, Lazarillo will tell you about nearby places,

the street you are walking on, street intersections in your way and more! Like a radio, Lazarillo will announce the things around you while you are moving.

This app was designed and implemented with active feedback from people who are blind.

The GPS resource is used even if the App is in the background. This allows the user to keep using the app without active usage of the screen, so they can

still enjoy the features of Lazarillo even when their phone is in their pocket or when using other relevant apps.

Note : "Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life."

This app allows you to use its accessibility functions for free, just requires mobile data or a Wi-Fi connection.

To collaborate with people who are blind, Lazarillo's main feature is to become the user's companion, providing essential information that allows displacement and autonomy.

The goal is to help the person reach the chosen place in a simple way, receiving Lazarillo indications by voice and notifications of nearby places, institutions,

shops, etc, allowing communication between the user and the city.

The app contains the following features:

Exploration: Provides your actual position, nearby places, and street intersections while you are walking on the street, in a bus or by car.

Category searches: Allows to find nearby places from a specific category such as banks, health, food, shop, art, entertainment, etc.

Specific searches: Allows to find a route to any place using voice or keyboard.

Help information:

Lazarillo provides information about establishments that work with blind or visually impaired people. The app is linked to a web platform where the institutions

are able to show important information about events, courses, workshops, and any data that a blind person may need. In that way Lazarillo collaborates

with these institutions improving the communication among users, providing better connectivity between people with visual disabilities.

I like it better than BlindSquare except for the fact this site does not return emails

I like the audio, intersection, announcing, blank square you have to know what you’re going to do you cannot go somewhere without knowing that your surroundings that’s the only problem with lying square it will announce but you must know where you’re going on this site it helps you set a route

Great Job! This gps app rocks for the visually impaired Comunity!

Erer Thanks Rene! Great app. I'm comparing it to blind square, which I've never used. It does intersections, and sores around you. You can explore categories as well, such as public buildings, bars, restaurants,etc.
