    Google has already improved the guided navigation for walking routes visually with the augmented reality Live View, but that solution does not work for people with visual disabilities. Now the company takes it a step further and begins to offer spoken directions, the more detailed.

    Now Google Maps you can let us know by voice if we are going by the correct path and each intersection we have to cross walk. We will be guiding you in every moment. Not like now, that only tells us turn by turn, so that until we get to the next turn not again to speak.

    This news has been designed specifically for people with vision problems, but any person can use it. It will be optional and will have to activate it within the navigation settings. The option is called “voice Guidance detailed” and you will be in the section on “navigation Options for pedestrians”.

    The only downside is that at the moment is novelty begins to be implemented today, only in English of America and japanese of Japan, but Google confirms that it will soon be available in more languages.
