A novel definition of visual languages allows a uniform approach to satisfying the needs of visual reasoning faced in visual human-computer interaction. The way the machine associates a computational meaning with an image, and conversely, the way it generates an image on the screen from a computation are formally described. A definition of a visual sentence and of a visual language as a set of visual sentences is discussed. A hierarchy of visual languages is derived in relation to the requirements for intelligible, manageable and trustable interaction between humans and computers
