Image tactile interaction is a new interaction method between human and digital images, allowing users to know digital images by touch. In order to improve the authenticity of image tactile perception, this paper proposes a tactile perception model based on image region features. Aiming at the phenomenon of over-partitioning and computational complexity of JSEG algorithm, we propose an improved JSEG algorithm, which can effectively reduce the computational complexity, divide the image areas which are more in line with the subjective visual judgment, and can be used for region-based image tactile generation. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm can correctly distinguish the image area and improve the accuracy of image tactile perception.
