Abstract. An application by which blind users can operate two tactile devices by themselves was developed. Laboratory assessment showed the possibilityto transmit certain kinds of non-textual information.

1 Introduction
Building a multi-modal interface is a promising way to improve access to information equipment for the blind. As previouslyreported, we developed two tactile devices, a tactile mouse and a tactile graphic display. We then developed an application by which blind users can operate the devices by themselves. Here we outlinedthe application and show the results of assessment using three set tasks.

2 List of Hot-Keys
Users can perform all operations to control the devices by keyboard. The keycommands are grouped intothree categories, namely display control, parameter input, and mouse pointer control. Table 1 shows the key assignment.
