Designing auditory displays to facilitate object localization in virtual haptic 3D environments
2006 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Five different auditory displays were designed to aid blind users in finding objects in a virtual haptic 3d environment. Each auditory display was based on a different principle and incorporated different methods for representing spatial information. Results from an evaluation with seven visually impaired persons reveal to what extent these methods facilitate object localization in a virtual haptic 3d environment.
