Abstract

User interfaces often use categories to organize information in different sets. Categories can  take many shapes and forms, but these are often suited more for normal sighted users. The idea described herein is a general purpose software library that can handle the translation of  information categories into vibro­tactile feedback. The basic principle of this system is to perform a sensorial substitution of information categories into tactile sequences.
