Yandex will help people with poor eyesight to call a taxi on a computer without outside help



To do this, the service uses screen readers, such as JAWS or VoiceOver, which, for the completely blind or visually impaired, voice everything that happens on the screen. With regard to calling a taxi, visually impaired users can call a car by ear and perform all the actions they need, not only by phone, but also from a computer or mobile device.

“Previously, to order a taxi, blind users had to call a call center or hand their smartphone over to another person. It is not right. Adapting the interface is a step towards creating an accessible environment where people with disabilities have the same opportunities as others, ”said Artyom Molchanov, head of the Yandex Go product line.
