Thanks to the support of a visual impaired user in Rome I rendered the in Arrivo HD transit app friendly for any user in a similar situation.
The app allows to know the stops around one's position, the route to them and the buses passing by and the waiting times without entering any information. Moreover it allows to read the direction to a certain destination and offers in app add ons to base the action in another location or future time, and also allows to reserve the closest taxi by a simple touch and/or to talk with them to arrange the trip.
Other features include the possibility of posting social paths in order to share taxi or car drive or even to arrange a walk, and the dashboard allowing to read the closest stops in a table and directly access their waiting times and location on the map.
Once the app is opened users with voice-over enabled will be able to hear the GPS accuracy and the addressed and number of nearby stops. Clicking the stop shall read its address, number, busses passing by it and their destination, distance and even the number of buses on approach. Visually impaired people may follow paths by an experimental pulsating sound getting more frequent the closer the user keeps to the path and acute the closer she is to the destination.
Presently the app supports Rome, Milan and London, but it is ready to support more cities once the transit support is made available, thanks to the unified back-office: there is a 100 euro reward for each city. The app is free to download and try.
Version 8.3 with full support for accessibility has been submitted to Apple for approval.
