Abstract : Tactile pictures identification: Role of visual imagery The role of visual imagery on the haptic identification of tactile pictures (raised line drawings) is an important question that is debated. Indeed, if visual imagery is necessary to the processing of tactile pictures, then visually impaired people lacking visual experience and/or visual imagery cannot understand the content of tactile pictures. The debate is still current, due to diverging results obtained from studies comparing blind and sighted participants on their ability to identify raised line pictures. A review of experimental works on the role of visual imagery in the processing of tactile pictures (five selected papers) indicates that context that favors the use of visual imagery facilitates the processing of tactile pictures. However, the identification of tactile pictures can be sustained with a comparabe level of success by a variety of types of mental imagery (visual, visuo-spatial, spatial, kinsesthetic, verbal), which preferential use is dictated mainly by the subject's visual status.
