- Audio material supporting the preparation of visually impaired people to go to an unfamiliar environment (18)
In Poland, the number of people with visual impairments (damages and diseases of the sight organ), including people with legal disabilities and declaring limitations in performing normal activities, constitutes as much as 1/3 of the total population. It is well known that hearing plays an important role in the functioning of people with visual disabilities. At the same time, these people are often afraid to leave their familiar surroundings, e.g. their own homes. An important support for people with visual disabilities would be the opportunity to familiarize themselves with such sounds that they may encounter in the external environment. In the course of research at the Central Institute for Labor Protection - National Research Institute, a set of sounds was collected that can be used by people with visual disabilities to get acquainted with the environment to which they can potentially go. These solutions allowed to obtain a spatial impression related to the correct direction of sound arrival. The audio material covers a number of situations in which a visually impaired person may find themselves, and includes sounds recorded not only at home, but also, for example, near intersections or in office buildings. The necessary data conversions have been made to obtain files in a format that can be played on headphones connected to a computer. The obtained data is intended for use in software used to familiarize people with visual disabilities with situations that are potentially new to them.
