    • Sonified epileptic rhythms 

      Baier, G.; Hermann, T.; Sahle, S.; Stephani, U. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      We describe techniques to sonify rhythmic activity of epileptic seizures as measured by human EEG. Eventbased mapping of parameters is found to be informative in terms of auto- and cross-correlations of the multivariate ...
    • Sound and soundscape classification: establishing key auditory dimensions and their relative importance 

      McGregor, I.; Leplatre, G.; Crerar, A.; Benyon, D. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      This paper investigates soundscape classification by using two different forms of data gathering and two different populations. The first method involves a questionnaire completed by 75 audio professionals. The second uses ...
    • The sound of one arm swinging: A model for multidimensional auditory display of physical motion 

      Kleiman-Weiner, M.; Berger, J. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      We present a novel approach to the sonification of complex human movement. As a specific model we examine the golf swing, of which two components, the velocity of the club head and the relative rotation of shoulders with ...
    • Spearcons: speech-based earcons improve navigation performance in auditory menus 

      Walker, Bruce N.; Nance, Amanda; Lindsay, Jeffrey (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      With shrinking displays and increasing technology use by visually impaired users, it is important to improve usability with non-GUI interfaces such as menus. Using non-speech sounds called earcons or auditory icons has ...
    • Tangible data scanning sonification model 

      Bovermann, T.; Hermann, T.; Ritter, H. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      In this paper we develop a sonification model following the Modelbased Sonification approach that allows to scan high-dimensional data distributions by means of a physical object in the hand of the user. In the sonification ...
    • Trajectory capture in frontal plane geometry for visually impaired 

      Talbot, M.; Cowan, B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
    • Transfer effects of playing a virtual three-dimensional auditory game: Influences on the performance in a communication task and a collision avoidance task 

      Honda, A.; Shibata, H.; Gyoba, J.; Iwaya, Y.; Suzuki, Y. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      We investigated the transfer effects of playing an auditory game with a virtual auditory display (VAD) on various auditory skills in daily life situations. To measure those effects, all blindfolded participants performed ...
    • Two tools for integrating sonifications into calculus instruction 

      Hetzler, S. M.; Tardiff, R. M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      Two sonification tools are presented for use in calculus instruction. The first is a web-based tool for teaching students to interpret sonifications. The other is a spreadsheet-based tool that uses sonification to support ...
    • Using psychoacoustical models for information sonification 

      Ferguson, S.; Cabrera, D.; Beilharz, K.; Song, H. J. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      Psychoacoustical models provide algorithmic methods of estimating the perceptual sensation that will be caused by a given sound stimulus. Four primary psychoacoustical models are most often used: `loudness', `sharpness', ...
    • Vocal sonification of pathologic EEG features 

      Hermann, T.; Baier, G.; Stephani, U.; Ritter, H. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      We introduce a novel approach in EEG data sonification for process monitoring and exploratory as well as comparative data analysis. The approach uses an excitory/articulatory speech model and a particularly selected parameter ...
    • Workplace soundscape mapping: A trial of Macaulay and Crerar's Method 

      McGregor, I.; Crerar, A.; Benyon, D.; Leplatre, G. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      This paper describes a trial of Macaulay and Crerar's method of mapping a workplace soundscape [1] to assess its fitness as a basis for an extended soundscape mapping method. Twelve participants took part within 14 separate ...
    • Xsonify sonification tool for space physics 

      Candey, R. M.; Schertenleib, A. M.; Diaz Merced, W. L. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      xSonify is a concentrated project to extend the space physics data capabilities of the NASA Space Physics Data Facility (SPDF) [1] for use by visually-impaired students and researchers, by developing a sonification data ...
