Blind people lack one of the five human senses. Vision may be the main one out of the five, but it is not the only one. This is the thought on which the authors of The vOICe founded their invention: software which allows some kind of perception of visual information with ears instead of eyes. The vOICe («OIC» stands for «Oh, I See!») software analyzes information from streaming video (it works with ordinary webcams) and encodes shapes, sizes and brightness into sounds of different loudness, pitch and length.
In stereo headphones, the sound «runs» left-to-right, describing the entire scene; several superimposed sounds describe objects present in the scene. Of course, such a description («soundscape») may not allow blind people to scrutinize art masterpieces, but The vOICes goal is other than that. It gives a detailed and (presumably) understandable overall impression like «big bright object at the left, empty space at the right and several small objects just ahead». With The vOICe and suitable wearable gadgets, a blind user can orient himself with a higher level of confidence.
It is well-known, that people who have lost one of their abilities can have others developed significantly. The vOICe allows people who lost vision to make the most of their remaining senses.
