A new update for the BlindSquare navigation app has just been unleashed on the iOS App Store which may make some iOS 10 users happy. Version 4.04 supports the new built-in voices which are included in iOS version 10, assuming they have been downloaded. Also, the new feature list includes the ability to repeat previously spoken messages in a speech history mode and a fix to reenable the use of the map in iOS 10. The complete changelog is below.
What's New in Version 4.04
New: BlindSquare now supports the new voices of iOS 10. Please note that BlindSquare can only use voices that have been downloaded onto your device. To download new voices, go to your device settings, General, Accessibility, VoiceOver, Speech.
New: The Speech History feature allows listening to previous announcements. When repeating announcements, distances and directions are updated to apply to your current location instead of the location you were at when the announcement was first played. You can activate Speech History mode by selecting it in the VoiceOver rotor. Swipe up or down to hear previous announcements. Alternatively, you can activate it through the music remote control. The Previous Track button will activate Speech History mode. As long as it is active, you can skip between messages using the Previous Track and Next Track buttons. If you press Play, shake your device, or wait for 10 seconds, Speech History mode will be turned off.
New: You can now configure the Audio Menu. Go to Other, Settings, Audio Menu to select or deselect Audio Menu items.
New: A list of all available Voice Commands can be found under Other, Voice Command Credits.
Change: To request location information through a headset or music remote control, please press the Next Track button instead of Previous track.
Fix: The map now works again under iOS 10.
Fix: Release Notes now support more languages.Source: iTunes App Store
