  1. Hi!
    My name is Cyprien and I am currently doing my masters in Madrid. Nice to meet you 🙂
    In the scope of the masters, I am working on a project with Lazzus (www.lazzus.com), an app designed to help blind people explore the city. The app actually give you a 360 degrees view of the steet, not just guides you from a point A to a point B. It has been launched in Spain 3 years ago and is used all over the world.
    I have stumbled upon your awesome blog today while looking for material about blogs/podcasts/influencers in the blind community to better get the word out there. I think the app is really great and that it can help improve blind people’s everyday life and independency. Given your experience and your notoriety in the blind community, it would be awesome if you can check it out, give me any feedback about the app and tell the community about it.
    Thanks and keep up the great work, the blog is amazing!


    1. Hi Cyprien, thank you for the nice comments. I appreciate it a lot! As for the app, Lazzus, it is not yet available in Philippine AppStore. I would like to test it, but I also do not have Android phone.
