Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In spite that superior abilities of visually impaired in tactile sensation are confirmed in some studies, the number of systems using such abilities is not so many. In this study, we have developed and evaluated an interactive system utilizing the superior abilities of visually impaired with additional active elements of gestures to make them enjoy. We employed TECHTILE toolkit as a device to output tactile sensation and Kinect for Windows as a device to recognize the gesture, and developed an interactive system with some types of tactile sensation and corresponding gestures. Experiments were performed to evaluate the system. The analysis of the experiment that added log data and a result of new analysis are reported in this article.
