  • Using an auditory display to manage attention in a dual task, multiscreen environment 

    Brock, D.; Stroup, J. L.; Ballas, J. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
    Spatialized sound technology is under consideration for use in future U. S. Navy watchstation systems as a technique to manage attention. In this study, we looked at whether spatialized sound would reduce head movements. ...
  • The role of information and uncertainty in auditory thresholds 

    Wong, W.; Figuetredo, S. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
    Any theory on the design of auditory displays must be predicated on a proper understanding of the temporal and spatial characteristics of audition. In this paper, we revisit a classic problem of psychoacoustics related to ...
  • Tick-marks, axes, and labels: The effects of adding context to auditory graphs 

    Smith, Daniel R.; Walker, Bruce N. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
    As the use of sonification expands, researchers and designers continue to employ techniques for adding context (such as tick marks, axes, or labels) whose benefit remains unquantified. This study examined the effect of ...

    Scavone, G. P.; Lakatos, S.; Harbke, C. R. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
    The Sonic Mapper is an interactive Linux-based graphical program that affords increased methodological flexibility and sophistication to researchers who collect proximity data for auditory research. The Sonic Mapper consists ...
  • The relation between spatial impression and the precedence effect 

    Morimoto, M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
    This paper reviews results of listening tests on auditory spatial impression (ASI) that describe the relation between individual characteristics of spatial impression and the precedence effect. ASI is a general concept ...
  • The impact of the sonification of a vocal server on its usability and its user-friendliness 

    Maffiolo, V.; Chateau, N.; Mersiol, M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
    This paper deals with the evaluation of the impact of the addition of eight sounds in a vocal server on its usability and user-friendliness. Thirty-two subjects tested two versions of a voicemail service through eight ...
  • The effect of early reflections on perceived timbre - analyzed with an auditory model 

    Lokki, T.; Pulkki, V.; Savioja, L. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
    In this paper the effect of early reflections to perceived timbre is studied. We apply room acoustic modeling to obtain simulated impulse responses which are explored. The timbre of modeled impulse responses is predicted ...
  • Sinusoidal and envelope modulation modeling of signals - a signal theoretic approach to acoustic events rendering 

    Tohyama, M. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
    This study investigates a signal theoretic approach to rendering acoustic events. Acoustic events modeling language (AEML) is an essential part of acoustic events rendering using an acoustic-data stream based on structured ...
  • Sound navigation: Sonified hyperlinks 

    Susini, P.; Vieillard, S.; Deruty, E.; Smith, B.; Marin, C. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
    This article deals with the idea of hyperlinks in the auditory realm, ``sonified hyperlink'', which is analog to the visual hyperlinks of the HTML language. The aim of the present article is to propose acoustical recommendations ...
  • Sound design for digital camera 

    Sugikubo, T. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
    In recent years, the auditory signals of the computers, some cellular phones and so on, are designed with digital audio data. Generally, in the power of expression, digital audio data is exceeds much farther than the ...
  • Surf music: Sonification of ocean buoy spectral data 

    Sturm, B. L. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
    The Coastal Data Information Program (CDIP) has been collecting data on ocean wave conditions since late 1975, first using arrays of pressure sensors, and more recently directional buoys. Fourier analysis of the data reveals ...
  • Simultaneity and polyphony in speech based audio art 

    Somers, E. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
    The author discusses the use of simultaneous speech in the design of radiophonic sound compositions. He begins with a discussion of speech in pre-literate societies and shows how simultaneity is a characteristic of speech ...
  • Speech intelligibility, spatial unmasking, and realism in reverberant spatial auditory displays 

    Shinn-Cunningham, B. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
    Many auditory displays strive to include accurate directional spatial cues, but few provide robust cues for source distance. This paper considers how including echoes and reverberation in a spatial auditory display (in ...
  • Scene management for modelled audio objects in interactive worlds 

    Menzies, D. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)

  • Subjective evaluation of auditory spatial imagery associated with decorrelated subwoofer signals 

    Martens, W. L. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2002-07)
    Although only a single subwoofer is typically used in two-channel and multichannel stereophonic sound reproduction, the use of two subwoofers enables manipulation of low-frequency interaural crosscorrelation (IACC), and ...
