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 experiment, the mapping condition that used two dimensions (the redundant condition) did not result in a better performance than those mappings that used one dimension. However, subjects showed a strong preference for the redundant condition. Finally, subjects' overall level was not very high and performance did not increase with practice as much as might have been expected.
