      In this paper we shall briefly review previous work we have found directly relevant to our own research on the use of auditory graphs. We will then summarise previous unpublished experiences of us- ing auditory graphs in ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 brief history of auditory data representation to the 1980s 

      Frysinger, Steven P (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      The field of Auditory Data Representation, which addresses the representation of quantitative data through the use of auditory, rather than visual, displays, has seen considerable activity in the last twenty years. On 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • A case study on the planned and actual use of auditory feeback and audio cues in the realization of a personal virtual assistant 

      Cooper, Bob (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      In the following paper, the concept of a Personal Virtual Assistant (PVA) is developed and a collection of user interface problems are enumerated and explained. For each of these areas, this paper discusses how audio ...
    • 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 ...
    • Creating an empirical framework for sonification design 

      Anderson, Janet (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
