Learning to Feel Words: A Comparison of Learning Approaches to Acquire Haptic Words
ACM Symposium on Applied Perception (SAP)
Recent studies have shown that decomposing spoken or written language into phonemes and transcribing each phoneme into a unique vibrotactile pattern enables people to receive lexical messages on the arm. A potential barrier to adopting this new communication system is the time and effort required to learn the association between phonemes and vibrotactile patterns. Therefore, in this study, we compared the learnability and generalizability of different learning approaches, including guided learning, self-directed learning, and a mnemonic device.
