Training effect of a virtual auditory game on sound localization ability of the visually impaired
MetadataShow full item record
It is essential for a visually impaired person to correctly identify the position of a sound source because such identification enables him/her to recognize his/her surroundings, including obstacles. We developed training equipment to help the visually impaired to improve their ability to identify the position of a sound source by applying a auditory display technique. Training for ten days with the system was conducted. As a result, the ability to identify a sound source position was improved.
