See the abstract of this study. If I understand things correctly, a late blind subject was subjected to TMS such that the areas related to vision were made temporarily inoperative. This user was unable to use the vOICe thereby indicating that the vOICe’s approach to sensory substitution is closly mapped to vision.
I started using computers in 1991 and begin by deleting command.com in DOS. I am a self-taught programmer and continue to program as a hobby. I work with all things technology and enjoy tinkering. Other hobbies include travel, reading (at least 1 novel per week) as well as writing shortstories and photography.
