AccessibleMaps are 'talking city maps' offering geographic information online and on mobile phone to persons with visual impairments. The description of the city environment is read out loud by a synthetic voice.
The spoken description of the map gives an idea of what a street looks like, how long it is, and what infrastructure, shops, and parks are nearby. The tool can be used to prepare for an upcoming trip or, via the mobile application, to get detailed information about one's surroundings while walking through the city.
