Today we are talking about the application called BlindSquare, a tool you can use to navigate the world around you.
I’ve use this application quite a bit in unexpected situations.
For example, when I was looking for a business that someone told me was around where I worked, and I needed more exact directions to find the front door.
What is BlindSquare
According to the What is BlindSquare
BlindSquare is the World’s Most Popular accessible GPS-app developed for the blind and visually impaired. It describes the environment, announces points of interest and street intersections as you travel. In conjunction with free, third-party navigation apps it is a powerful solution providing most of the information blind and visually impaired people need to travel independently. Your safety is our highest priority. BlindSquare is self-voicing, announcing points of interest, intersections and user-defined points through a dedicated speech synthesizer. The most important BlindSquare functions can be accessed through an audio menu via any headset or speaker that supports Apple’s music controller. This means you don’t need to touch the screen of your phone looking for tiny buttons when you travel with BlindSquare, because many functions can be activated using the physical buttons of your headset or bluetooth speaker. If you are blind or visually impaired, BlindSquare is your safe, reliable, and accessible GPS-solution.

Getting started with BlindSquare
If you’re interested in the article I mentioned on today’s podcast episode, here’s the article showing you how to get started with BlindSquare
. The video at the bottom of that article, check it out and leave your comments for the Ryder.
How I used the BlindSquare app at work
When someone would recommend that we go somewhere for lunch at my previous job, the best opportunity I had for looking at restaurants around me was while Titan was relieving himself during my first break.
So, I would be looking for something on my phone, while Titan was looking for some place to go and then I would start to plan my root.
As you’ll see, i didn’t really have time to flick around an app, and try to explore it, and I think this is why:
One of my favorite features about this application is that it allows you to browse categories of businesses around you, and sort those business is based on what closest.
It was very easy for me to browse all of this information, and whenever I needed the application to work it just did.
There was never any fighting to find the information I needed, and once I found the information I needed I could easily send it to my favorite navigation app that I wanted to use for turn by turn directions.
Then, as I’m using my navigations turn by turn directions, I’m able to leverage the feedback from BlindSquare to help guide me exactly where I need to be in order to go into the business.
It’s an experience you need to have, and I only briefly cover the features on today’s podcast.
