Comment — JVIB Extract

Since Comments do not have abstracts, we have provided an extract of the beginning of the text.

Extract: We live in an era when technological advances are being developed at an exponential pace. The so-called tech boom is affecting all aspects of life from redefining social interaction to physical activity and health outcomes. It should be no surprise that older adults are an important part of the technological revolution since they represent a sizable and growing section of the world's population. As older adults of the present generation expect a longer lifespan, which increasingly includes some experience with visual impairment, technology increases the potential of remaining healthy and active for as long as possible. Technology in the area of wayfinding represents an important element of the overall strategy to achieve this goal.
