Completely useless and unusable in Australia. Doesn't find any landmarks and is around 50 to 80 metres out when walking along. Thankfully, there are numerous better options out there. Dont bother wasting your time with this app, unless you live in Israel.

The application is very good and very helpful but where it lacks is nearby location related things, it only shows locations in Israel and not in India. I hope the developers will fix this.

Hi Aziz, thank you for your feedback, RightHear has outdoor features that are supported in every country. RightHear is a paid system for venues who wants to allow also indoor features for blind visitors.

I'm sure this is great in a big city where they can afford to help the visually impaired. Where there are many who would use it. My town is small & unwilling to help when there are very few people who would use the service.
