      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)

    • 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)
      Designing for the mobile device currently allows for the exploration of additional dimensions beyond that of simple graphic treatment. The relationship between two of these dimensions, audio and haptics is discussed here. ...
    • Effect of aesthetics on audio-enhanced graphical buttons

      In this paper, two different auditory feedback schemes related to graphical buttons are compared to each other and to a visual- only condition. The results show that aesthetically pleasing auditory design is clearly preferred ...
    • Creating an empirical framework for sonification design 

      Anderson, Janet (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      Sonification research and design is held back by a lack of empirical evidence on which to base design decisions. The purpose of this paper is to identify the crucial decisions that need to be made at each stage of the ...
    • Brief training for performance of a point estimation sonification task 

      Walker, Bruce N.; Nees, Michael A. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      This study examined different types of brief training for a point estimation task with auditory graphs. Participants estimated the price of a stock at a specific times in a 10-hour trading day as depicted in a sonified ...
    • Explore the matrix: Browsing numerical data tables using sound 

      Kildal, Johan; Brewster, Stephen A (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      When first approaching a two-dimensional (2D) data table, a user often wants to get a quick overview of the data before analysing them in more detail. Blind and visually impaired people cannot do this task at all using ...
    • 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 ...
    • A system for real-time virtual auditory space 

      Scarpaci, Jacob W; White, John A (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      The understanding of how people perceive spatially dynamic sound sources is limited, due in part to the difficulty of controlling dy- namic environmental interactions. Free field solutions require large rooms with bulky ...
    • A comparision of audio & visual analysis of complex time-series data sets 

      Pauletto, Sandra; Hunt, Andy (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      This paper describes an experiment to compare user understanding of complex data sets presented in two different modalities, a) in a visual spectrogram, and b) via audification. Many complex time-series data sets taken ...
    • Auditory graphs: The effects of redundant dimensions and divided attention 

      Peres, S Camille; Lane, David M (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      An experiment is presented comparing the effectiveness of three parameters of sound for the auditory presentation of statistical data or auditory graphs. The dimensions of pitch, loudness, and time were used alone and ...
    • An agenda for research and development of multimodal graphs 

      Walker, Bruce N.; Nees, Michael A. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      Effective multimodal graphing tools can be beneficial to both sighted and visually impaired students and scientists. However, before this can become a reality, considerable research is required on the auditory graphing ...
    • An examination of mechanisms to combine speech and sound for data analysis 

      Stockman, Dr. Tony (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      Speech based screen reader technology provides the most com- mon means for visually impaired users to access spreadsheets and databases. Such a spoken word interface can be effective if rela- tively small amounts of data ...
    • Auditory representation of visual stimuli: Mapping versus association 

      Shenkar, Orit; Weiss, Patrice L; Algom, Daniel (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      Two methods for representing visual images by sounds were explored. The analytic method used a rule-based representation by which values of continuous auditory variables defined each point in space. The metaphoric method ...
