<center><b>Announcing WebSound:</b>
<br>"A generic Web sonification tool and its application to a Web browser
<br>for blind and visually impaired computer users..."</center>

<p><br>
<br>
<p>Maybe you have heard about us during conferences like ICAD, CHI, HCI
or DL.
<p>We are happy to announce you that a free download version of WebSound
is now available
<br>at : <A HREF="http://websound.unige.ch/">http://websound.unige.ch/</A>
<p>Introduction:
<br>---------------
<p>WebSound is an extended visual WWW browser for visually impaired and
blind computer users.
<br>In conjunction with a graphic tablet or a touch sensitive screen, blind
<br>users can perform an "audio-haptic exploration" of an HTML document
in order to
<br>understand not only its content but also its 2D visual information
(i.e the document
<br>layout).
<p>WebSound is the ideal solution for:
<p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Web browser for blind users
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Non-visual navigation
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; HCI research
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Web sonification
<br>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Advanced multimedia development
