Google Maps app updated with enhanced voice guidance
« on: October 11, 2019, 11:56:02 AM »


Google is adding some improvements to the voice guidance in Maps, specifically aimed at people with impaired vision. A new feature that gives people the ability to receive more detailed voice guidance will be rolled out to Google Maps starting today.

The Mountain View company also announced that new types of verbal announcements for walking trips will make it to Google Maps as well. These features have been specifically built for people with vision impairments, they're not adapted from already available features.

Although the new feature targets people with visual impairments, it can be very helpful for those who want a more screen-free experience on their next walking trip. Detailed voice guidance functions just like the announcements that we're used to hearing at crosswalks or on a bus, so it's great to know that it's just one tap away.
