Abstract

This paper presents the development of 3D virtual environment for the deaf and hard-of-hearing learners’ Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine operation in vocational training. The 3D virtual environment that we developed incorporated head mounted display (Oculus Rift) for more immersive three-dimensional visual representation, and touchless Natural User Interface (Leap Motion) for learners to explore and interact with a virtual object by using hand gestures. The usability test results revealed that the 3D virtual environment with emerging technologies has a potential to help hearing impaired learners by providing realistic and immersive experiences with concrete 3D virtual objects. Based on the feedback from the usability test, we modified the system and are planning on conducting the second usability test, which will be also presented.
