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 the way sound is interpreted. However, in order for auditory graphs to be successful, a more thorough understanding of individual differences is needed. This paper proposes a series of experiments that look at cognitive abilities, musical abilities, and other demographics in college students and the visually impaired. The author, however, stresses the importance of collaborating with other researchers to obtain data on other groups of people.
