New blind students often receive only basic orientation and mobility. This is likely not to be repeated each semester when their class schedule and navigation changes. Some apps address rough outdoor navigation. GoodMaps offers an accurate campus indoor/outdoor experience where installed. Learn about apps that provide this essential wayfinding service so students can navigate confidently and independently throughout their college journey. Here from Mike May and Leslie Johnson how having the navigation is useful for all students on campus at Michigan State University.
Campus accessible navigation can improve all student's college experience. Without assistive navigation tech it can be very difficult for students who are blind to navigate college. Participants will witness a video demonstration of how an indoor navigation app can make navigating the indoors easier.
This session is presented by Evelyn Tichenor and Leslie Johnson.
