Hey all -- a heads up to fellow journal readers.
If you don't have access to a particular article, just send the title and
author to getarticles at googlegroups.com
Someone from the list will send you a PDF of the article within a few hours.
Lots of people (not me) are in academia where thousands of different
journals are free and immediately accessible.
I saw in this case that Joshua kindly attached a PDF of the article, so this
is in case you want other articles.

> Sensory substitution devices provide through an unusual sensory modality
> (the substituting modality, e.g., audition) access to features of the world
> that are normally accessed through another sensory modality (the
> substituted modality,
> e.g., vision). In this article, we address the question of which sensory
> modality the acquired perception belongs to. We have recourse to the four
> traditional criteria that have been used to define sensory modalities:
> sensory organ, stimuli, properties, and qualitative experience (Grice,
> to which we have added the criteria of behavioral equivalence (Morgan,
> dedication (Keeley,
> and sensorimotor equivalence (O'Regan & No?,
> We discuss which of them are fulfilled by perception through sensory
> substitution devices and whether this favors the view that perception
> belongs to the substituting or to the substituted modality. Though the
> application of a number of criteria might be taken to point to the
> conclusion that perception with a sensory substitution device belongs to
> substituted modality, we argue that the evidence leads to an alternative
> view on sensory substitution. According to this view, the experience after
> sensory substitution is a transformation, extension, or augmentation of our
> perceptual capacities, rather than being something equivalent or reducible
> to an already existing sensory modality. We develop this view by comparing
> sensory substitution devices to other "mind-enhancing tools" such as pen
> paper, sketchpads, or calculators. An analysis of sensory substitution in
> terms of mind-enhancing tools unveils it as a thoroughly transforming
> perceptual experience and as giving rise to a novel form of perceptual
> interaction with the environment.
