Blind travelers can get around an airport more easily with new app

Written by on December 26, 2017

A new app that’s helping blind and visually impaired travelers find their way around an airport in Kentucky could be coming to other airports next. Using Bluetooth technology, the free “Indoor Explorer” function of the existing Nearby Explorer app transforms a smartphone into an audio guide that can tell users exactly where they are in the airport and guide them – turn by turn, step by step – to gates, ticket counters, baggage claims or the nearest Starbucks. Washington Post
