    • An investigation into the identification of concurrently presented earcons 

      McGookin, David K; Brewster, Stephen A (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      In this paper we describe an experiment investigating the ability of participants to identify multiple, concurrently playing structured sounds, called earcons. Several different sets of earcons were compared, one ``state ...
    • Latency measurement of a real-time virtual acoustic environment rendering system
