Textual Driving Directions from Google

Some time in early 2010, Google changed the Screen Reader view of their Maps service causing it to no longer display textual driving directions. The program offered on this page provides an easy method of getting text driving directions.

  1. Download GDD_1.1.exe
  2. Save this program wherever you like, such as on your desktop or a portable thumb drive
  3. When you need directions, run the program. It is browser-based, so a web browser will open.
  4. When finished, click the Exit link at the bottom of any page.

If you have comments, use this contact form or message @IAmChrisN on Twitter.
