NaviRec is a guidance player for the Visually Impaired. You can download guides (guidance data) from the download site for this app, and use them with NaviRec's "Player mode" and "Guide mode".

"Player mode", like a music player, plays the audio descriptions which are recorded in the guide. Use this mode when you check the contents of the guide before going out.

You can also create your own guides with "Recorder mode". For details about each modes, please read "How to Use" in the app.

Using a mobile device outdoor can be often distracting and dangerous. Avoid operating a device as much as possible while walking, and always stop and pay attention to the surroundings when doing so.
