Many blind people can interpret reflected sound to obtain information about their surroundings. It is called echolocation. Some can learn to identify individual objects around them. The skill can be trained, and even results in changes to the brain.
For many blind and vision impaired people, getting around in public spaces can be a challenge. Human echolocation allows people with limited or no sight to sense what is around them through the reverberation of sound.
