Intersection Explorer is an audible mobility program designed for use by individuals who are blind or have low vision. This application (or app) turns a cell phone or tablet computer running the Android operating system into an accessible navigation aid to help users get an understanding of a neighborhood before venturing out and while on the go. The program is used in conjunction with WalkyTalky (see separate entry), and "Walking Directions" and "Places" in Google Maps. The user starts at his or her current location or enters a new location from the menu and Intersection Explorer speaks the layout of the streets at the nearest intersection. The user can drag his or her finger along a compass direction or drag in a circle to speak each street that he or she crosses with compass direction. The user can also move to the next intersection on the street by lifting finger. COMPATIBILITY: For use on cell phones or tablet computers running the Android operating system. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: Android version 2.3 or higher; enabled GPS.
