The app works with stereo headphones and an iPhone. I don't think it's
available on Android, but I'm happy to be proved wrong on that. It works by
telling you where popular landmarks are, but it uses the stereo to tell you
it's location in the direction that the landmark is. Here's a youtube video
that demonstrates it:
The drawback is that you need to have headphone in, so it takes up your
valuable sense of hearing. Of course, you could always use bone conducting

Subject: [access-uk] soundscape?
I had an assessment for a new guide dog few days ago and the trainer
mentioned some kind of GPS system for the blind.
I think she called it soundscape, and it's produced my microsoft.
Does anyone have more info on this device?
guide dogs tell me it could be up to two to three years before I get a new
dog, and I'm terrible with the cane.
I do have a trekker breeze, but this device, according to the trainer will
tell you what shops you are passing. Now that would be cool! If i can get
one that is.
