A new app aims to assist blind people navigate Perth’s public transport network

It’s the brainchild of Perth software designer Voon-Li Chung, who was inspired by a radio program on rail access in NSW.
He heard a story on Radio National about the human rights commissioner in NSW taking legal action against the rail operators.
The Commissioner claimed the voice announcements were not sufficient for visually-impaired people to navigate the train network.
“So basically you would have to sit there and focus on every time the train stopped in order to keep track of where you were and if you got distracted or you didn’t count that was it,” he said.
