WalkyTalky is an audible mobility program designed for use by individuals who are blind or have low vision. This application (or app) turns a cell phone or tablet computer running the Android operating system into an accessible navigation aid. The user types in a destination, and the program launches Google Maps Navigation in the Walking directions mode. The program can also navigate to a contact if that contact's listing includes an address. The program periodically updates the status bar with the user's current location to the nearest street address. In order to minimize distracting messages while the user is trying to type in a destination, the program begins speaking only after the screen has been turned off or after navigation has started. COMPATIBILITY: For use on cell phones or tablet computers running the Android operating system. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: Android version 2.1 or higher; enabled GPS.
