Humanware Trekker GPS System for the Blind and Visually Impaired
Humanware has a system called Trekker which is a GPS system developed for the blind and visually impaired. It helps users use digital maps and figure out exactly where they are. The GPS system can provide information about local area attractions as well as find out more about their present location. The device can fit in your hand and offers a lanyard to wear around your neck.
“Before I leave on a trip, I download the map for my destination city from the VisuAide Web site. Then, once I’m comfortably settled on the plane, I can start exploring the city using the Browsing Offline mode. Trekker points out attractions near my hotel – restaurants, stores, museums, and so on. I can save talking notes about points of interest – for example, a reminder about a restaurant someone really liked.
