Description of App: 

NaviRec is a guidance recording app for the visually impaired.
The app is a combination of a voice recorder and GPS device.
It is capable to record audio and its locations during
an entire travel and recreate its experience subsequently,
helping the visually impaired to travel confidently.

Safety Notice:
Using a mobile device outdoor can be often distracting and dangerous.
Avoid operating a device as much as possible while walking, and
always stop and pay attention to the surroundings when doing so.
The accuracy of GPS varies depending on its
environment. For a visually impaired user, it is advised to always
use a white cane and rely on additional cues when traveling.

Privacy Notice:
NaviRec does not send or share the recorded audio
or locations without an explicit user operation. Amedia
Corporation does not collect or share any personal information by
using this App. NaviRec does not require wireless or mobile
internet connection for its basic functions.

NaviRec has three modes: Record Mode, Replay Mode and Guidance
Mode. Record Mode and Replay Mode work just like a normal
voice recorder. It records and replays the audio recorded during a
guidance. When traveling, use Guidance Mode. It replays the
recorded audio clip based on its location, helping the user
to remember the guidance and navigate towards the destination.
