App, BlindWays, 2016

This is a App. It was designed by Perkins School for the Blind. It is dated 2016. Its medium is digital.

This app began as a challenge to the Perkins School for the Blind: How to find the bus stop when you cannot see it? Blindways picks up where GPS falls short, guiding pedestrians who are blind through the "last 30 feet of frustration" to bus stops using community crowdsourced clues.

It is credited Courtesy of BlindWays.
