Spark contributor Veronica Simmonds looks into a new tool that uses 3D printing to bring old photographs to life for people who are blind. She also looks at software that uses sound to represent the visual world. Will these technologies change the way visually impaired people experience memory, or are they just a novelty?

Veronica spoke with Pranav Lal and Dr Michael Proulx.

She and Randy Firth checked out the 3D printer at the Digital Innovation Hub at the Toronto Reference Library.
