Abstract: Nowadays, people have to face many challenges in order to become familiar with all the functionalities of electronical devices. The training process becomes thus essential, especially when we are referring to consumer electronics created for people with disabilities. Our paper presents the importance of training visually impaired people for an advanced sensory substitution device. By using the advantages of virtual reality, a series of 3D virtual scenes were developed, in order to ease the training process for the device. Our proposed training program shows encouraging results and helps us draw relevant conclusions in the development process of a revolutionary device.
