Soundscape- a 3D audio navigation app for the blind and visually-impaired, helping them to navigate complex environments with greater confidence and in greater safety

Soundscape uses 3D audio technology to help users with visual impairment build a fuller and more complete awareness of urban environments, giving them a richer understanding of where they are and what is around them. This in turn helps them to navigate with greater confidence and more independence. It allows users to search for destinations and store markers and route information that they can use to help guide them on their way to the places they need to reach.

Have been Beta testing this alongside Microsoft Soundscape. It’s pretty much identical.

The developers are really responsive to feedback.

Such a relief to be able to continue using this fantastic app. I use it alongside Google Maps. It gives me all the visual data in Google maps in an auditory way.

Have tried lots of other apps and they’re all quite annoying in the way they announce things. Soundscape is very intuitive and just announces what you want at a time you want it, ie the upcoming junction at a sensible distance. The coffee shop you’re about to pass.

Other apps repeatedly continue to announce things half a mile after you’ve passed. Very irritating snd audio overload. I just don’t get on with them.

Wouldn't be without it

Soundscape is an invaluable tool for visually impaired people on the move. It effortlessly tells you what street you're on, what intersections are coming up, and about points of interest as you pass them. You can also use it to explore a location without actually visiting it. Highly recommended.
