Hearing images web application
I have created an experimental web application on my website called HearImage, it converts an image in to sound with the idea that blind people can scan an image and (with training) get an idea what is in the image by listening to the sound produced by different regions of the image. It can be tried out at
Touch/click the image and sound is produced generated by the local colour info.
(It needs html5 webaudio browser support to work)
A terrible idea? interesting? wont work?
Perhaps it could tell me what the sunset is like! I haven't seen one in years. LOL
I wish it could, I guess you can still hear the stillness and feel the sun's infra-red glow. I just tested the app on sunset image, it sounds like someone playing a double bass, but the dark cloud parts don't sound so nice!
What browser does this work with?
I have had it working with Chrome and Firefox
