      In a recent cross-cultural study with participants from an autochthonous African population (Mafa) and Western participants, it was shown that the recognition of several emotional expressions (happy, sad, fearful) in ...
    • Audio Augmented Reality in Telecommunication Through Virtual Auditory Display 

      Gamper, Hannes; Lokki, Tapio (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
      Audio communication in its most natural form, the face-to-face conversation, is binaural. Current telecommunication systems often provide only monaural audio, stripping it of spatial cues and thus deteriorating listening ...
    • Audio-Visual Panoramas and Spherical Audio Analysis using the Audio Camera 

      Duraiswami, Ramani; O'Donovan, Adam (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
      Capturing a scene for later or contemporaneous display needs to capture the complex interactions between the source(s) in the scene and the environment. High order spherical Ambisonics and plane-wave analysis are powerful ...

      Our study focuses on multimodal information access to audiovisual databases, and evaluates the effect of combining the visual modality with audio information. To do so, we have developed two new exploration tools, which ...
    • Aurally Aided Visual Search with Multiple Audio Cues 

      Brungart, Douglas; Iyer, Nandini; Simpson, Brian (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
    • Awesome - A Tool for Simulating Sound Environments 

      Liljedahl, Mats (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
      Sounds are (almost) always heard and perceived as parts of greater contexts. How we hear a sound depends on things like other sounds present, acoustic properties of the place where the sound is heard, the distance and ...
    • Communicative Functions of Sounds which we call Alarms 

      Tuuri, Kai; Pirhonen, Antti (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
      The design of alarm or warning sounds appears to be far from a trivial challenge. Even if the basic principles of creating an alarming quality for a sound have been widely accepted and applied, there seems to be a ...
    • Comprehension of Speech Presented at Synthetically Accelerated Rates: Evaluating Training and Practice Effects 

      Wasylyshyn, Christina; McClimens, Brian; Brock, Derek (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
      The ability to monitor multiple sources of concurrent auditory information is an integral component of Navy watchstanding operations. However, this leads to attentionally demanding environments. The present study tested ...
    • Content-based Retreival from Unstructured Audio Databases using an Ecological Acoustics Taxonomy 

      Herrera, Perfecto; Schirosa, Mattia; Kersten, Stefan; Janer, Jordi; Roma, Gerard (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
      In this paper we describe a method to search for environmental sounds in unstructured databases with user-submitted material. The goal of the project is to facilitate the design of soundscapes in virtual environments. ...
    • Corrective Sonic Feedback for Speed Skating: A Case Study 

      Boyd, Jeffrey; Godbout, Andrew (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
      We present a system that provides real-time audio feedback to athletes performing repetitive, periodic movements. The system synchronizes the temporal signal from a sensor placed on the athletes body with a model signal. ...
    • Development and Evaluation of a Cross-Modal XML Schema Browser 

      Stockman, Tony; Al-Thanki, Dena (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
      We describe the development and evaluation of across-modal XML (Extensible Mark-up Language) schema browser. The aim of developing the system is to investigate cross-modal collaboration between users. The browser provides ...
    • Distracting Effects of Auditory Warnings on Experienced Drivers 

      Fagerlönn, Johan (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
      A range of In-Vehicle Information Systems are currently developed and implemented in trucks to warn drivers about road dangers and vehicle failures. Systems often make use of conventional repetitive auditory warnings ...
    • Effective Design of Auditory Displays: Comparing Various Octave Ranges of Pitch and Panning 

      Ritchey, Paul; Muse, Lindsey; Nguyen, Harry; Burks, Ricky; Peres, S. Camille (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community for Auditory Display, 2010-06)
      There is a large volume of research on designing effective visual displays, however there is little empirical research informing basic design on auditory displays. With the decreasing size of hardware (e.g., hand-held ...
