|The way that visually impaired people access computers has changed little in 20 years. Online we exploit colour, images, video and animations to communicate, often excluding the blind. They instead have a single voice read the page from top to bottom.
AudioWeb seeks to make their experience of the Internet as easy, fun and meaningful as it is for the sighted. Using the richness of sound to change speed, pitch, voice, accent and tone, and using 3D surround sound, we can transform the computer interface completely. This project is inspired by the blind, but can be enjoyed by all.
