Accessibility to blind users
« on: June 25, 2012, 13:22:54 »
Unlike other Android GPS apps used by blind people, Locus Free/Pro has location tracking and logging functions which those other apps do not have.  These logging features would be incredibly useful to blind pedestrians.  Unfortunately, most of the buttons in the Locus interface are not labelled and are announced by the TTS voice as 'button' instead of with their function.  This app is therefore utterly useless to blind people, a community which would benefit from its features!

  I'm worried that most of Locus GUI is too complicated for blind users, isn't it? Anyway by your description, it looks like system speak as user touch buttons? Is there a way to enable this behaviour on every phone? (To test it)
