Seeing with Sound (image) The Hebrew University of Jerusalem Caption Illustration demonstrates the concept of visual-to-auditory sensory substitution. Images from a camera are converted into "soundscapes," using a predictable algorithm, allowing the user wearing earphones to listen to and then interpret the visual information coming from the camera. This enables blind people to decode the visual information within the sounds and perceive complex images of people, words and objects.
