Augmented Reality for the Blind: See with your Ears! <p><br><br>The vOICe for Android maps live camera views to soundscapes, offering augmented reality and unprecedented visual detail for the totally blind through sensory substitution and computer vision. It uses pitch for height and loudness for brightness in one-second left to right scans of any view: a rising bright line sounds as a rising tone, a bright spot as a beep, a bright filled rectangle as a noise burst, a vertical grid as a rhythm. Best used with smartglasses and stereo headphones for the most immersive experience and most detailed auditory resolution. Swipe-up toggles between the smartglasses GUI and the smartphone GUI.</p> <p><br><br>Autostart note: to provide blind accessibility out-of-the-box, this app launches automatically after a reboot; you can readily disable the autostart feature in the app's menu Options | Other settings. The visual cataract simulator for sighted users can similarly be toggled on and off as desired.</p> <p><br><br>Visit <a href="http://www.seeingwithsound.com/android.htm" rel="nofollow">http://www.seeingwithsound.com/android.htm</a> for more information and disclaimers.<br></p>
