Soundscape

Introducing Microsoft Soundscape

Microsoft Soundscape is an exploration app, developed in collaboration with Microsoft, that has been designed to make it easier for you to explore towns and cities.

The app was tested and influenced by Guide Dogs service users and staff with a vision impairment.

“I’d feel more confident if I was somewhere I didn’t know. If a friend said to me, meet me at a café, I’d feel more confident that I’d find it. Microsoft Soundscape is really good, I really like it.”
