* Touch the screen to speak the streets at the nearest intersection
* Drag your finger along a compass direction or drag in a circle to speak each street that you cross with their compass direction

* Use in conjunction with WalkyTalky from the Eyes-Free project, and Walking directions and Places in Google Maps to get a new level of access in the physical world
