• 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Individual differences in interpreting auditory graphs 

      Mauney, Lisa M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      Very little research has been done on the role of individual differences in the interpretation of auditory graphs. Research with the visually impaired, musicians, and college students point to interesting differences in ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Thresholds of audibility for bone-conduction headsets 

      Walker, Bruce N.; Stanley, Raymond M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2005-07)
      Despite advantages of using headphones, including privacy and portability, headphones have one essential drawback: they cover the ears of the listener, thus deteriorating detection and localization of ambient sounds. ...
