抄録: Visually impaired people have difficulty with communication of graphical information. It is to be more difficult for them to work/play in cooperation with sighted people at a distance. We developed a non-visual access method to a graphical screen through tactile and auditory sense, and applied it into network board/card games as a joint workspace for blind and sighted users via communication of image, sound, and voice. We took an "IGO" type boardgame and a Card game "SEVENS" as sample subjects for a cooperative task in the workspace. Next, we proposed two types of human interfaces, both of which would support direct access to graphical information on the PC screen. The first, new ActiveX-type driver software that works under Windows 95/98/NT, supports direct access to graphical information using synthetic speech sounds and a touch panel (Nomad) with a tactile checkerboard. We introduced these details of the system and discussed their application to the interface of the "IGO" type boardgame or the card game "SEVENS". The second is an acoustic graphic interface. The acoustic graphic may be simply described as "graphics observed by finger and ear". It helped blind users recognize the colors, shapes, and sizes of displayed graphics via cooperative perception of the fingertip position and nonverbal feedback sound. We experimented with the acoustic graphic, and discuss our results herein. Finally, we refer to a production system of 3D tactile objects (teaching materials) and its role as a teaching aid to be used with the acoustic graphic.
