The vOICe Learning Edition

The vOICe (CTO Peter B.L. Meijer)

The vOICe seeing-with-sound software translates images from a PC camera (webcam) into sounds that you hear via your stereo headphones, thus targetting vision substitution applications for the totally blind, and even synthetic vision. Some blind people wear it daily with a wearable setup to "see" their environment as they go around, while other blind people (blind from birth) use it to experience for the very first time what vision is like. The vOICe uses pitch for height and loudness for brightness in a left to right scan of any view. Apart from using a webcam or equivalent video capture device, images may also be imported from an image file (Control O) or acquired with a flatbed scanner (Control Q).
