Abstract

We demonstrate SoundLines, a mobile app designed to support children with visual impairments in exercising spatial exploration skills. This is achieved through multi-touch discovery of line segments on touchscreen, supported by sonification feedback. The approach is implemented as a game in which the child needs to guide a kitten to find its mother cat by following with a finger the line connecting them.
