Abstract

            One of the most challenging aspects in designing an audio mixer for the visually impaired is enabling the user to control the device using only their perception of touch and hearing. The control of any audio mixer or system can be tedious and troublesome, even for sighted individuals. The design of the Audio Mixer for the Visually Impaired (AMVI) compensates for the operator’s lack of vision by taking advantage of their keen sense of hearing and tactile perception. AMVI system audio feedback network informs the operator of the status of the mixer. The AMVI not only promotes better design and implementation of an easier control system but also allows more individuals to accurately control a system without engaging in the possibility of visual deception.
