Smart phones themselves have been a huge boon for blind people but I am 
not so sure about touch screens. Just having a GPS in your pocket is 
enough of a benefit to make the smart phone a huge boon. There are 
pluses and minuses to touch screens though.
voices it's directions.  Even the most inaccessible app at least does that.
