    • The effect of auditory spatial layout in a divided attention task 

      Best, Virginia; Ihlefield, Antje; Shinn-Cunningham, Barbara (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      The effect of spatial separation on the ability of listeners to report keywords from two simultaneous talkers was examined. The talkers were presented with equal intensity at a clearly audible level, and were designed to ...
    • Towards an auditory representation of complexity 

      Gossmann, Joachim (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      In applications of sonification, the information inferred by the sonification strategy applied often supersedes the amount of information which can be retrieved by the ear about the object of sonification. This paper focuses ...
    • Sonically exposing the desktop space to non-visual users: an experiment in overview information presentation 

      Nickerson, Louise Valgerour; Stockman, Tony (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      The vast majority of computer interfaces do not translate well onto non-visual displays (e.g. for blind users, wearable/mobile computing, etc). Screen readers are the most prevalent aural technology to expose graphical ...
    • Mobile audio designs monkey: An audio augmented reality designer's tool 

      Walker, Bruce N.; Stamper, Kevin (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      Audio Augmented Reality (AR) design is currently a very difficult task. To develop audio for an AR environment a designer must have technical skills which are unrelated to the design process. The designer should be focusing ...

    • Loudness asymmetries for tones with increasing and decreasing levels 

      Susini, Patrick; McAdams, Stephen; Smith, Bennett K (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      Studies of loudness change for tones with linearly varying levels using different loudness rating methods, such as direct estimation or indirect estimation based on the start and end levels, have revealed an asymmetry ...
    • One small step: Sound sources and events as the basis for auditory graphs. 

      Neuhoff, John G; Heller, Laurie M (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      An overwhelming majority of auditory graphs employ a representational design that maps changes in a variable to changes in a ``low-level'' acoustic dimension such as frequency, intensity, or spectrum. However, there are ...
    • Sonimime: Sonification of fine motor skills 

      Fox, Jesse; Carlile, Jennifer; Berger, Jonathan (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      This paper describes the design of SoniMime, a system for the soni cation of hand motion. Among SoniMime's applications is the use of auditory feedback to re ne ne motor skills in a wide variety of tasks. Our primary soni ...
    • Navigation performance in a virtual environment with bonephones 

      Walker, Bruce N.; Lindsay, Jeffrey (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      Audio navigation interfaces have traditionally been studied (and implemented) using headphones. However, many potential users (especially those with visual impairments) are hesitant to adopt these emerging wayfinding ...
    • Travelling without moving: Auditory scene cues for translational self-motion 

      Valjamae, Aleksander; Larsson, Pontus; Vastfjall, Daniel; Kleiner, Mendel (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      Creating a sense of illusory self-motion is crucial for many Virtual Reality applications and the auditory modality is an essential, but often neglected, component for such stimulations. In this paper, perceptual optimization ...
    • Understanding immersive audio: A historical and socio-cultural exploration of auditory displays 

      Droumeva, Milena (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      This paper examines the historical and socio-cultural underpinnings of immersive audio seen from the paradigms of Acoustic Ecology and Acoustic Communication. The paper offers the view that in order to understand the many ...
    • Wireless gesture controllers to affect information sonification 

      Beilharz, Kirsty (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      This paper proposes a framework for gestural interaction with information sonification in order to both monitor data aurally and, in addition, to interact with it, transform and even modify the source data in a two-way ...
    • Cueing hyperlinks in auditory interfaces 

      Hamer-Hodges, Dan; Li, Simon Y.W.; Cairns, Paul (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      This paper describes two empirical experiments investigating the perception of embedded audible hyperlinks, designed using speech and non-speech cues, and their effect on the comprehension of synthetic speech. Results from ...
    • Candidates for within-vehicle auditory displays 

      McKeown, Denis (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      Speech, auditory icons (sounds imitating real world events), environmental sounds (naturally occurring sounds), and abstract warnings are all candidates for user interfaces. Such auditory displays and warnings for ...
    • Blind flight: Do auditory lane departure warnings attract attention or actual guide action? 

      Rosmeier, Markus; Grabsch, Hans-Peter; Rimini-Doring, Maria (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      This paper presents a research project concerning the effect of an auditory lane departure warning in a driving simulator experiment. The experimental design is chosen to induce drowsiness-related lane departures. We only ...
    • Dimensional design: Explorations of the auditory and haptic correlate for the mobile device 

      O'Sullivan, Conor; Chang, Angela (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
