For your information. Those who have RealPlayer and a fast Internet
connection, can listen to a presentation titled "Seeing with Sound:
Wearable Computing for the Blind" at the RealPlayer streaming video
URL ("ram file")

   http://www.nordic-interactive.org/nic2001/ram/meijer.ram

from the recent NIC-2001 conference in Copenhagen. The slide views
were not included in this video recording, so it actually makes for
a kind of "audio-only video". No advantage in being sighted here,
which I suppose makes it more appropriate for this list. You will
notice that at the beginning of the talk, the slides were not even
showing in the actual presentation. Also, the room acoustics of
course washed out much of the auditory detail in the soundscape
examples.

Please note that the presentation was in this case for a sighted
audience interested in interactive multimedia, so that affected
various choices made for the content of the talk. I hope you do
not mind too much about that.

The software discussed is available for free from the web page
URL below, and is meant for use in combination with a webcam and
stereo headphones.

Best wishes,

Peter Meijer
