    • Audio games: Fun for all? All for fun! 

      Targett, Sue; Fernstrom, Mikael (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      In this paper we investigate if it is possible to create entertaining computer games that use only non-speech aural feedback and if such games could be used for skills acquisition or in therapeutic applications. To answer ...

      Earphone-based simulation ofHead-Related Transfer Functions (HRTFs) is a common component of spatial auditory display for virtual sound sources located in virtual environments, but one technical component of HRTF deployment ...
    • Vocal pedagogy and pedagogical voices 

      Wakefield, Gregory H (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      Singers learn from their teachers lessons that to the outsider are not transparently obvious. Some of these lessons are discussed in the paper, and their application to problems in sound quality, music information retrieval, ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Subjective selection of non-individual head-related transfer functions 

      Seeber, Bernhard U; Fastl, Hugo (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      The individualization of head-related transfer functions (HRTFs) for virtual acoustics is a key technique for the optimization of the directional reproduction. This paper presents a subjective selection method for a fast, ...
    • Spatially-modulated auditory alerts 

      Begault, Durand R; Anderson, Mark R; McClain, Bryan U (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
      The technique of spatial modulating (``jittering'') an existing or newly created auditory alert along a virtual trajectory to improve its detection in a noisy environment is described. Threshold data from 14 participants ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • A three-dimensional virtual simulator for aircraft flyover presentation 

      Rizzi, Stephen A; Sullivan, Brenda M; Sandridge, Christopher A (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2003-07)
