Abstract

We have been studying integrated information receiving terminals designed to convey to visually impaired persons such information as multimedia news and emergency disaster report. This paper reports on the arrangement and outline of such a terminals, the means of information transfer for text broadcasting, ISDB and emergency broadcast, and means of remote communication for persons with both visual and hearing impairment. We have also tested how accurately braille information can be recognized when information is presented by various types of stimulation for a short period of time. The results show that the perception of 6-finger simultaneous/1-finger apparent motions is the most accurate. Further, factors contributing to braille recognition errors were analyzed, and the results are reported in the paper.
