I am partially sighted and cannot adjust the speech rate and location distance at all. Please help. The on screen directions say to swip up or down and it doesn’t work. Also, if I am traveling I5 will the app announce towns, historic places or any place of interest that is not commercial. I need help. Also, I press the Tool button and do not get a compass. What’s that all about? By the way, your site could use a customer service site, a Q&A site or other help. Is 4 Square something I need to use this app?
Are you using VoiceOver or not? If not, you need to swipe left/right.
If you use VoiceOver, when you select radius, you have to swipe up/down quickly enough to change radius. This is basic functionality of iOS devices.
When you travel you will most likely to hear places you mention. Data comes from foursquare database that is based on crowdsourcing: Any user of FourSquare who has visited the place might have added the place if it was missing. Usually there is much more points of interest than in other databases.
Tools/Compass has been renamed “Tools / Look around”.
You don’t need to use foursquare: BlindSquare works just fine without account in FourSquare.
How do you connect using the blue tooth controller. Cannot find instructions or suss how to do this?
Currently BlindSquare supports only iControlPad bluetooth remote and it’s really cool to use it with that! You pair your device using instructions of iControlPad. After that you can use it with following instructions: https://docs.google.com/document/pub?id=1j-O_mHm-qSP6QjkKogI5nuhnSTD9LQyCdqnJs9fEc1o
I have plan to add support for any BT keyboard. Then it would work ok with braille displays too.
PS. I’m going to write some additional help text of pairing. For now, if you have that device, please email me directly firstname.lastname@example.org and I can give further instructions over skype
can i use the aftershokz blues headphones mentioned in the accessories page to control blind square remote feature in v 2?
Yes, Aftershokz Bluez works with new Audio Menu.
You can carry phone in pocket, bag etc. and use headphone remote controlling features.
If you can control music with its remote (play, stop, etc.), then it should work with BlindSquare too, if you have enabled this feature from Other / Settings.
iPhone and iPad with 3G / 4G.
