Various sensory substitution devices (SSDs) have been designed in the past decades with the aim of creating a visual experience for the blind. We will present the EyeMusic, a visual-to-auditory SSD for the blind, providing both shape and color information. Our design uses musical notes generated by natural instruments to convey the visual information. This creates a pleasant user experience and facilitates prolonged use. We further present behavioral results showing that shape and color information are indeed decodable from the generated auditory stimuli.
