In this work, we investigate how using the haptic channel as a complement to the audio/vocal one can provide better support for the use of mobile museum guides for blind users. The aim is to improve autonomy and social integration of blind visitors. Based on our previous experience in mobile guide design, the proposed solution aims to add tactile feedback enhancement for orientation support and obstacle avoidance.
