Interpreting visual art with sound for a more inclusive experience

Landscape painter Keith Salmon dedicated his career to visualizing the mountains of Scotland. As his eyesight started to deteriorate, he soon realized that his art could be expressed in new ways with the help of technology and sound. Keith partnered with Microsoft Researcher Neel Joshi to build an interactive audio visual exhibit at the 9e2 festival of art and technology in Seattle that allows individuals with visual impairment, as well as those with sight, to experience the canyons of Oregon.
