But the question is, what qualia are these people actually experiencing? Are the vision people actually seeing? Or are they subconsciously aware of what they are 'seeing'?

IIRC, there was a ted talk a while back with the same idea, but they did colors->sound I think.

I'm wondering if this is actually useful, or if it's just subconscious interaction with the senses. Makes a huge difference.
