Sensory substitution as a framework to access visual and spatial information for the blind and visually impaired
Event Date:

Abstract:

Despite the progress on assistive technologies for the visually impaired, numerous sources of information remain difficult to access without vision. Most of the existing solutions for visually impaired people rely on language to convey information, whether it is through an auditory (text-to-speech synthesis) or tactile (braille) medium. However, those solutions often fall short when the information to provide is highly dynamic or difficult to efficiently convey through language (e.g. spatial or image-based information).
