> Hello list members,
> starting today there is a visual slippy map displaying map features for
> the blind an visually impaired available in a beta testing state:

> Hobby cartographers without visual impairment can now check their
> contributions to the map for the blind, what will give them motivation.
> That is how the map will force the adding of tags relevant for tactile
> maps and navigation software for the blind as the next steps.
> The two tags "tactile paving" and "traffic_signals:sound" are
> already surprisingly often used.
> Thank you to all contributors!
> More tags will be added from time to time.
> Please spread this information to your interested friends
> and colleagues.
