    • 3D real-time auralization with separate rendering of direct sound, reflections and directional late reverberation 

      Lesoinne, S; Werner, N; Embrechts, J. J. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      Auralization in room acoustics is created by the convolution of an anechoic audio signal with the RIR (room impulse response), either computed or measured at the receiver location. This paper addresses the directional RIRs ...
    • Aquarium sonification: Soundscapes for accessible dynamic informal learning environments 

      Walker, Bruce N.; Godfrey, Mark T.; Orlosky, Jason E.; Bruce, Carrie; Sanford, Jon (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      Museums, science centers, zoos and aquaria are faced with educating and entertaining an increasingly diverse visitor population with varying physical and sensory needs. There are very few guidelines to help these facilities ...
    • An architecture for presenting auditory awareness information in pervasive computing environments 

      Kainulainen, A.; Turunen, M.; Hakulinen, J. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      In this paper we present how awareness can be supported in pervasive computing environments through auditory information. We introduce an application which uses soundscapes to support people's awareness of each other's ...

    • Auditory alarms, medical standards, and urgency 

      Sanderson, P.; Eunice, S.; Philippe, L.; Alexandra, W. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      A newly-released international standard for medical equipment alarms, IEC 60601-1-8, incorporates a long-standing suggestion that alarms should indicate their source through distinctive melodies. In this paper we examine ...
    • Cognitive-map forming of the blind in virtual sound environment 

      Ohuchi, M.; Iwaya, Y.; Suzuki, Y. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      This paper describes a new assistive technology for sightless persons based on a virtual auditory display (VAD). This system is intended to encourage its users to improve their map-forming skills and use them more efficiently ...

    • Considerations arising from the development of auditory alerts for air traffic control consoles 

      Cabrera, D.; Ferguson, S. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      Previously, the authors reported in detail on the development of a set of auditory alerts for the air traffic control consoles now used throughout Australia [1]. The present paper briefly describes these alerts again, but ...
    • Contextual audio in haptic graph browsing 

      McGookin, D.; Brewer, S. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      This paper presents a ``think-aloud'' study investigating the ability of visually impaired participants to make comparisons between haptic and audio line graphs. Graphs with two data series were presented. One data series ...

    • Converting images to music using their colour properties 

      Margounakis, D.; Politis, D. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      Music is associated to colors since ancient years. Different mappings between attributes of sound and images allow the efficient conversion between the two types of media. The proposed method for converting images to music ...

    • Detection and localization of speech in the presence of competing speech signals 

      Simpson, B. D.; Brungart, D. S.; Iyer, N.; Gilkey, R. H.; Hamil, J. T. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      Auditory displays are often used to convey important information in complex operational environments. One problem with these displays is that potentially critical information can be corrupted or lost when multiple warning ...

    • Digiwall - an audio mostly game 

      Liljedahl, M; Lefford, N.; Lindberg, S. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2006-06)
      DigiWall is a hybrid between a climbing wall and a computer game. The climbing grips are equipped with touch sensors and lights. The interface has no computer screen. Instead sound and music are principle drivers of DigiWall ...
