In our information-rich world, computers generate so much data that it comprehending and understanding it in its raw form is difficult. Visual representations are imperative if we are to understand even a small part of it. In addition?or as an alternative to visual mappings?we could map information into nonvisual forms, any form that stimulates any of our senses: from auditory, haptic, olfactory, and gustatory to vestibular.
nonvisual, haptic, modality, nonsighted, multiperceptual
