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.

Upcoming street announcements, distance

I would like to see less distance announcements currently 50 m is too far upcoming intersection, would also like to hear walking along the same side street intersection announcement to my left, straightahead, or to my right, or directional for example 30 m at 2 PM intersection named Blake even though it does not intersects with the same side of the street I am on would be nice to hear it’s there

Distance is off and turning is off

When using the app while walking the feet is like 900 feet or foot instead of going into feet he told me my house was still 100 foot of her head to me and didn’t even tell me when I needed to turn. Not sure if there’s a glitch in the app the app used to work pretty good some states do not offer people to teach your own Owen M skills anymore. Unless you’re going after a job or going back to school so the ones who are going blind or newly blind or on their own. Because they consider them homemaking skills

Developer Response ,

Hello, thank you for your review. Is it possible that you could send us an email to with the directions in which the routing didn't work as you expected so we can simulate it.
Thank you

I’d like you to add a turn by turn navigation just like google maps that will be great.
