Ashim commented on Gantabya - The Talking Destination

Great initiative Sonika! This is a giant step towards making a social infrastructure reform in Nepal's context. A great opportunity for visually impaired to experience full navigational independence. Kudos to your team!! Few questions:
a) Is there a way to monitor reserved seats before notifications are sent out? Say, if these seats are taken for a stop. Also, brings into factor ETA for the next bus - real time traffic updates.
b) Anything required on client's cellular device to receive signal? Minimum Bluetooth version, lets say.
c) Any possibilities to partner with cellular service providers to waive off cellular data that come at the expense of using your application?
d) In your testing phase, you mention "small tests with prospective users." Any other voice assisted technology these users have used, or are familiar to? How did these users navigate otherwise? How was the feedback from your test users?

Once again, a big thanks to your team for taking this initiative. A pioneer project in making for Nepal's context. Keep at it!
