The Scottish Tech Army is delighted to announce that its replacement Soundscape service is now available.
This first release is as close to a faithful reproduction of the original app as possible, to ensure that those who are already used to using the navigation tool have confidence that the replacement provides all of the functionality they have come to rely upon. The app remains free for all users.
Funding has been secured to ensure its long term viability and, now that we have this like for like replacement, we will embark on a programme of efficiency and functionality improvements, co-produced and designed with the blind and vision impaired community.
Guide Dogs worked on Microsoft's original research project and has committed to working with us to identify the most valuable improvements and support its community of service users to use it to full effect.
Listen out for today's Double Tap podcast where Steven and Shaun meet our Head of Partnerships Kirsty McIntosh as she tells the story of how it's come about and how its future can be secured.
