A new app for Android smartphones has been released to help Perth residents who are blind or vision impaired get around on buses.
Stop Announcer (Perth) provides audio information for buses and other public transport around Perth, Western Australia. Users select their route number and stop, and the app counts down the number of stops and alerts the user when their stop is approaching. The app is designed specifically for people who are blind or have low vision, so it is completely screen reader accessible with a high contrast visual design.
Developer Voon-Li Chung explained the inspiration for Stop Announcer.
