First of all apilogies if this is already discussed. I am a low vision person and there is only so much time I can spend searching for information as it is stressful on the eyes. I spent considerable amount of time before posting here.
As I stopped driving and started taking public transit, I am feeling the need for an app that is customized for my needs. While on the bus, it is hard to either look out and find where I am and if the bus does announce the next intersection, it is most of the times, impossible to hear. So, what I need is an app that tells me what is the next stop as the bus travels along the route. It would also be helpful if it announced the next intersection/street. This would help me in figuring out when to pull the cord to request a stop.
What sdk/api would help in this? I am looking at google maps api or anything that I can use to integrate with the app on iphone. Given that this is for a low vision person, the visual map is less important. What I plan to do is, use the info that I get from the maps and feed it to the iOS accessibility framework to convert to voice. Any help and pointers will be greatly appreciated.
