Abstract

In this study we have developed a puppet shows system for hearing-impaired children. It is difficult for hearing-impaired children to experience a puppet show. One of the reasons that hearing-impaired children have difficulty experiencing a puppet show is because the performance is a collaborative interaction experience. Collaborative interaction experiences encourage immersive viewing toward an empathetic understanding of the characters. This paper aims to design a collaborative interaction experience function for hearing-impaired children. This function provides collaborative interaction for the audience to work with the characters to resolve issues in the story by using body motion. From the results of the evaluation experiment, we understood that the collaborative interaction experience function generally supported an immersive puppet show experience for the audience.
