Attention: This only works in Sweden, and the UK. It will soon work again in the US and Germany, too! We're working on it...
The TouchOver Map is a research prototype, which allows blind or visually impaired people to explore an almost arbitrary map excerpt through vibro-tactile and speech feedback.
This accessible application only works for regions in Sweden, and the United Kingdom. All other countries are not yet covered, but may follow later. OpenStreetMap data ensures high details in the covered regions.
Slide your finger across the screen and get immediate vibration feedback once you come across a road. Hear the name, which is read by the Text-To-Speech engine, and build your own mental map of the environment.
To analyze how this application is being used, some data will be send to our servers, containing how you use this application. We will not log any data that allows to identify you in person.
