    • Perceptive study and recommendation for sonification categories 

      Susini, Patrick; Gaudibert, Piotr; Deruty, Emmanuel; Dandrel, Louis (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      In the field of audio signaletics, most sound designers have their own recipes to make samples that convey a certain meaning, which we could call auditory function. The aim of the present article is to compare the perceptive ...
    • Perceptively based design of new car horn sounds 

      Lemaitre, Guillaume; Susini, Patrick; Winsberg, Suzanne; McAdams, Stephen (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      Due to the technologies used, there exist only a few different kinds of car horn sounds. We propose a method for the design of new sounds, based on a perceptual study of the actual sounds of car horns. Firstly we deal with ...
    • Perceptual consequences of including reverberation in spatial auditory displays 

      Devore, Sasha; Shinn-Cunningham, Barbara (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      This paper evaluates the perceptual consequences of including reverberation in spatial auditory displays for rapidly-varying signals (obstruent consonants). Preliminary results suggest that the effect of reverberation ...
    • A physics-based approach to the presentation of acoustic depth 

      Fontana, Federico; Rocchesso, Davide (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      A virtual listening environment providing localization cues is proposed for the reproduction of acoustic depth. By simulating the propagation of acoustic waves inside a tube it allows to change the source/listening point ...
    • Reality (sound)bites: Audio tricks from the film and TV studio 

      Rose, Jay (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      In the example-filled session that accompanies this paper, we'll listen to some of the ways sound designers fix–-or sometimes, break–-voices, music, and effects to help serve a director's vision. We'll start with how ...
    • Smith-Kettlewell display tools: A sonification toolkit for MATLAB 

      Miele, Joshua A (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      The Smith-Kettlewell Display Tools (SKDtools) is an accessibility toolkit for the popular modeling and data manipulation environment MATLAB. It provides blind and visually-impaired users with a variety of sonification and ...
    • Sonification design patterns 

      Barrass, Stephen (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      Most product designers have little or no experience with sonifications. Designers from a range of different domains use a common method called Design Patterns to describe ``solutions to problems in context'' in a way that ...
    • Sonification of absolute values with single and multiple dimensions 

      Sandor, Aniko; Lane, David M (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      Although auditory displays are effective for the representation of patterns in data, they are generally thought to be less effective for the communication of absolute values [1, 2]. Nonetheless, there are times when it is ...
    • Sonification of statistical graphs 

      Peres, S Camille; Lane, David M (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      Two experiments are presented that compare the effectiveness of different parameters of sound for the auditory presentation of box plots. Temporal mapping was found to be better than pitch or panning mapping. In the first ...
    • Sonification sandbox: A graphical toolkit for auditory graphs 

      Walker, Bruce N.; Cothran, Joshua T. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      Motivated by the need for a multi-platform, multipurpose toolkit for sonifying data, the Sonification Sandbox allows users to map data to multiple auditory parameters and add context using a graphical interface. The ...
    • Sound-discrimination learning and auditory displays 

      Wright, Beverly A; Fitzgerald, Matthew B (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      Human listeners can learn to discriminate between sounds that are initially indistinguishable. To better understand the nature of this learning, we have been using behavioral techniques to examine training-induced improvements ...
    • Soundview: Sensing color images by kinesthetic audio 

      van de Doel, Kees (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      An experimental system called SoundView has been developed, which allows the exploration of a color image through touch and hearing. The image is mapped onto a virtual surface with a fine-grained color dependent roughness ...
    • A spatial audio user interface for generating music playlists 

      Hiipakka, Jarmo; Gaetan, Lorho (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      This paper presents a user interface (UI) designed for non-visual interaction with a music collection. The UI system can be utilized to navigate a large list of musical items organized in a hierarchical structure, and to ...
