      When moving sound sources are displayed for a listener in a manner that is consistent with the motion of a listener through an environment populated by stationary sound sources, listeners may perceive that the sources are ...
    • A Study Toward the Development of a Spatial, O Speech Auditory Interface for Trigonometric Problem Solvig 

      Neff, Flaithri; Pitt, Ian (International Community for Auditory Display, 2008-06)
      There are numerous difficulties for visually disabled students when tackling mathematical problems. This relates more to methods of presentation rather than to any deficiency in the students' abilities. Although presentational ...
    • Affective Multimodal Displays: Acoustic Spectra Modulates Perception of Auditory-Tactile Signals 

      Tajadura-Jimenez, Ana; Valjamae, Aleksander; Kitagawa, Norimichi; Vastfjall, Daniel (International Community for Auditory Display, 2008-06)
      Emotional events may interrupt ongoing cognitive processes and automatically grab attention, modulating the subsequent perceptual processes. Hence, emotional eliciting stimuli might effectively be used in warning applications, ...
    • Pairing Colored Socks and Following a Red Serpentine With Sounds of Musical Instruments 

      Bologna, Guido; Deville, Benoit; Pun, Thierry (International Community for Auditory Display, 2008-06)
      The See ColOr interface transforms a small portion of a colored video image into sound sources represented by spatialized musical instruments. This interface aims at providing visually impaired people with a capability of ...
    • Auditory Stimulus Design: Musically Informed 

      Stallmann, K; Peres, SC; Kortum, P (International Community for Auditory Display, 2008-06)
      This paper discusses an approach to auditory stimulus design that appropriates concepts and techniques commonly used in music composition. These ideas are used to create referential sound cues that orient a listener along ...
    • AudioDB. Get in Touch With Sound 

      Bovermann, Till; Hermann, Thomas; Ritter, Helge (International Community for Auditory Display, 2008-06)
      In this paper we present AudioDB, a system to collaboratively navigate sound databases via a spatial audio-haptic setup. It provides an environment to sonically sort, group and select sounds which are represented as physical ...
    • Evaluating Listeners' Attention to and Comprehension of Spatialized Concurrent and Serial Talkers at Normal and a Synthetically Faster Rate of Speech 

      Brock, Derek; McClimens, Brian; Trafton, J Gregory; McCurry, Malcolm; Perzanowski, Dennis (International Community for Auditory Display, 2008-06)
      Concurrent voice communications workload has been identified as a pivotal issue for desired reductions in the size of Navy watchstanding teams on future platforms. Without effective augmenting technologies, real increases ...
    • Could Function-Specific Prosodic Cues Be Used As a Basis for Non-Speech User Interface Sound Design? 

      Eerola, Tuomas; Tuuri, Kai (International Community for Auditory Display, 2008-06)
      It is widely accepted that the nonverbal parts of vocal expression perform very important functions in vocal communication. Certain acoustic qualities in a vocal utterance can effectively communicate one's emotions and ...
    • Design, Validation, and In-Flight Evaluation of an Auditory Attitude Indicator Based on Pilot-Selected Music 

      Brungart, Douglas S; Simpson, Brian D (International Community for Auditory Display, 2008-06)
      Although all cockpits are currently equipped with visual displays that provide accurate information about the attitude of the aircraft, spatial disorientation continues to be one of the leading causes of aviation accidents. ...
    • Database Concept for Medical Auditory Alarms 

      Schneider, Max (International Community for Auditory Display, 2008-06)
      With this paper we want to explore the benefits of an online available database for medical functional sounds and auditory alarms. The concept is inspired by an extensive context research in the medical field and aims to ...
