I agree with everything in your letter about the potential benefits of
preprocessing to optimize Optacon presentation of print characters.
I have been working on a low vision reader that used various image processing
algorithmns to optimize print character images for reading by someone that
has peripheral vision, but a central blind spot prevents reading normal
print. I have been very impressed about how much this helps. We are getting
reading rates two to five times faster than the same person can do with a
CCTV. I think the same kind of preprocessing would help the Optacon.
Will you be at CSUN?
