ObjectiveEd O&M game: Sound Search

Sound Search is an Orientation and Mobility sound identification game that practices sensory efficiency, sound identification, sound categorization and memory.  Like all games and apps in the ObjectiveEd digital curriculum, you configure the game in a web-dashboard, and and you monitor your student’s progress in the web-dashboard.

Sound Search has a list of sound names or large icons on the left side of the screen and a list of sounds on the right side of the screen.

As the student runs their finger down the left side of the screen, they will hear each word as they pass over each large image.    As the student traverses the list on the right side, they will hear each sound in the list.

The object of the game is to draw a line between the matching sound name and the sound, such as between the “DOG” and the barking sound.

To draw the line, drag your finger through the list on the left side of the screen until you find the item you want, then drag your finger to the right side of the screen.  Lift your finger when you’ve touched the item on the right that you think completes the match.

For a blind child, when they touch an item that was already used, they hear a click sound.  For a child with low vision, they hear the click sound and they see the bold green line connecting pairs that already matched.

You can adjust the number of items in the left and right columns.  For a child that is very young, you may want to have just one item, such as a dog,  on the left and two sounds (such a barking and a meowing) on the right.

The game includes many sound packs, such as indoor sounds, vehicle sounds and animal sounds.
