Get Moving With Public app Transportation Moovit, now Accessible


An app growing in popularity for those using public transportation is Moovit. In the latest update to both its iOS and Android apps, the developers announced that "In the latest version of the app, we ve made every screen accessible to blind riders with VoiceOver and TalkBack enabled on their iOS and Android devices". In our initial tests, it does indeed appear that the app is now very useable on both platforms. The only minor issue noticed was that the screen would refresh with new information, and it was then possible focus with VoiceOver would move slightly.

What is Moovit?

Moovit provides access to public transit information in over 800 cities and will send you alerts when to exit your public transit optionif when you you plan a trip. The app, where supported, will also give the user information in real time related to delays and changes which could impact their travel. Moovit is a free download in the iOS App Store, and in the Google Play Store.
