"VoicE" Helps the Blind 'See' With Their Ears - Presented by: The Aol. On Network

Called 'The vOICe', this software trains the brain to turn visual images taken from a camera into sounds that a blind person can use as navigational reference points. Dr Michael Proulx wants to promote it as a non-invasive alternative to retinal surgery for the blind. The training software breaks up two-dimensional photographs of objects by creating a scale of tonal notes related to an object's height and density.
