Navigation of blind people is different from the navigation of sighted people and there is also difference when the blind per- son is recovering from getting lost. In this paper we focus on qualitative analysis of dialogs between lost blind person and nav- igator, which is done through the mobile phone. The research was done in two out- door and one indoor location. The analy- sis revealed several areas where the dialog model must focus on detailed information, like evaluation of instructions provided by blind person and his/her ability to reliably locate navigation points.
