The Psychology of Touch

By Morton A. Heller; William Schiff | Go to book overview

this volume), the translation to space is readily accepted by users, and the frequency of vibration can be kept at the value of maximum dynamic range of the system. A number of researchers feel that better representation by the aid of other dimensions of speech, for example, voicing, voice onset time, manner, place, and so on, will produce improved performance by users.

In general, the problem in designing a better tactual speech aid, as well as a better cochlear implant, lies in part in clarification of the models of hearing and speech perception. It was mentioned previously that speech perception by deaf persons and mobility of blind persons have some analogous characteristics. Perhaps the lack of a complete description of the processes involved in these two complex perceptual-motor skills remains the impediment to further refinement of the technology for rehabilitation.
