Providing the blind with substitute visual perception is a relentless challenge confronting researchers of diverse areas. The See ColOr (Seeing Color with an Orchestra) system translates aimed-at regions of a color scene into 2D-spatialized sound signals represented by musical instruments. Associating sounds with colors is achieved thanks to an efficient quantization of the regions' HSL representation (Hue, Saturation, Luminosity). See ColOr can be used both for exploring static images and as a mobility aid. In this report, we introduce its general framework for color-audio encoding of images to provide visually impaired individuals with a low-cost application for color perception substitution, using the sense of hearing instead of sight. The experimental tests using a demo implementation have shown the feasibility and usefulness of this approach.
