    • Integrating Auditory Warnings with Tactile Cues in Multimodal Displays for Challenging Environments 

      Haas, Ellen C (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2007-06)
      In battlefield environments of the future, auditory warnings may be integrated with tactile cues in multimodal displays. The U.S. Army is exploring the use of audio and tactile multimodal displays in applications such as ...
    • Individual Differences and the Field of Auditory Display: Past Research, A Present Study, and an Agenda for the Future 

      Mauney, Lisa M.; Walker, Bruce N. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2007-06)
      There has been some interest in the study of individual differences in the field of auditory displays, but we argue that there is a much greater potential than has been realized, to date. Relevant types of individual ...
    • Improvising with Spaces 

      Oliveros, Pauline (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2007-06)
      This paper explores qualitative changes that occur in voices and instruments in relationships with changing spaces ordinarily held in a stationary paradigm of performance practice, spatial transformations and the effect ...
    • Audio Reminders in the Home Environment 

      McGee-Lennon, Marilyn R; Wolters, Maria; McBryan, Tony (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2007-06)
      In this paper we report an experimental comparison between three different types of audio reminders in the home setting: speech, earcons, and a simple pager sound. We examine how quickly and accurately participants were ...
    • Establishing Key Dimensions for Reifying Soundfields and Soundscapes from Auditory Professionals 

      McGregor, Ian; Crerar, Alison; Benyon, David; Leplatre, Gregory (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2007-06)
