A drawing program for blind people with the aid of a touchscreen

Free Download


Short Manual

The program BlindPaint starts in the painting mode, so the blind person can start to draw. When the person wants to "hear" the picture, you have to switch to the viewing mode. This can be done by pressing the key V. Then the finger can be moved over the touchscreen and a special sound is played when the finger is moved over a colored part, so the blind person can follow the drawn picture. To return to the painting mode, press the key P.

Hint: If you rename the file sound2.wav to sound1.wav, you get a bass tone which makes the PC speakers vibrating. Then, also deaf-and-blind people can recognize the painted lines via feeling the PC speaker.
