Proxemic Interaction


Using Microsoft Connect people who are blind and low vision can interact with art and participate in other experiences based on their proximity. For example, if going to view an art piece when they are 5 feet away they may get background music, then when they are 4 feet away they may get sonification, at 3 feet they may get sound effects and at 2 feet they would get a verbal description of the piece of art. This can be modified to fit different scenarios.
