Creating an Audio-Haptic Narrative Book for Blind Children: The Role of Audio Feedback in Inducing Pleasure

Abstract

The aim of this study was to create an audio-tactile narrative book for blind children and to assess the role that auditory stimulation played in the feeling of pleasure in a blind child reader.
We first explain the features of the audio-tactile book and second we report interviews with 4 blind readers.
Our methodology was qualitative and showed that these children felt the greatest pleasure when both tactile and audio elements were present in the book.
