Travel trainer and Occupational therapist

There needs to be an app for passengers with Visual Disabilities, which would audibly identify the bus stop # (we have individual id #'s for each stop here in Denver, RTD) so they can locate exact location of and unfamiliar stop and so they can call the customer service line and use automated info to hear next 3 times for that route. This could also be used by people who don't have the height to see the stop id#.

app to track a designated location as you get near it

Need a cell phone app that will allow you to set a marker on a location and give it a name. Then when one wants to return to that spot one can call up the app and it will produce a tone when you are pointing the phone at the location and get louder as you get nearer.

Establishing Virtual Fields for Visually Impaired People

Most visually impaired and blind people, in their familiar environments, are able to find their paths and destinations without any trouble. Thus the visually impaired or blind people may not need any help if they are in a familiar path. However, what if they are thrown into an un-familiar environment?
