That is, in order to use the system, the first thing you need to […]

How we give you the right directions when you need them

One thing that makes BindiMaps so powerful for our users with vision impairment is the years we have spent developing our Navigation Language Framework (NLF)- the rules and systems we use for issuing spoken directions to users.
