    As an expansion of the NPSNET Research Group (NRG), the Auralization and Acoustics Laboratory (AA-Lab) at the Naval Postgraduate School studies the integration of aural cues into virtual environments. Currently, the AA-Lab ...
  • TRIANGLE: A practical application of non-speech audio for imparting information 

    Gardner, John A; Lundquist, Randy; Sahyun, Steve (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1996-11)
  • TaDa! Demonstrations of auditory information design 

    Barrass, Stephen (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1996-11)
    The prospect of computer applications making "noises" is disconcerting to some. Yet the soundscape of the real world does not usually bother us. Perhaps we only notice a nuisance? Sounds can support information-processing ...
  • Synthesis of shape dependent sounds with physical modeling 

    van de Doel, Kees; Pai, Dinesh K (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1996-11)
    We describe a general framework for the simulation of sounds produced by colliding physical objects in a real time graphics environment. The framework is based on a physical model of the vibration dynamics of bodies. The ...
  • SynthBuilder and Frankenstein: Tools for the creation of musical physical models 

    Porcaro, Nick; Putnam, William; Scandalis, Pat; Stilson, Tim; Jaffe, David; Smith, Julius; Van Duyne, Scott (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1996-11)
    SynthBuilder is a user-extensible, object-oriented, NEXTSTEP Music Kit application for interactive real-time design and performance of synthesizer patches (especially physical models) (Jaffe & Smith, 1983; Smith, 1987). ...
  • Sound, space, and metaphor: Multimodal access to windows for blind users 

    Dufresne, Aude; Martial, Odile; Ramstein, Cristophe; Mabilleau, Phillipe (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1996-11)

    James, Frankie (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1996-11)
  • Mappings and metaphors in auditory displays: An experimental assessment 

    Walker, Bruce N.; Kramer, Gregory (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1996-11)
    Auditory displays are becoming increasingly common, but there are still no general guidelines for mapping data dimensions (e.g., temperature) onto display dimensions (e.g., pitch). This paper presents experimental research ...
  • Mapping a single data stream to multiple auditory variables: A subjective approach to creating a compelling design 

    Kramer, Greg (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1996-11)
  • Micro-narratives in sound design: Context, character, and caricature in waveform manipulation 

    Back, Maribeth; Des, D (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1996-11)
    This paper reviews sound design techniques used in professional audio for music and theater and proposes a conceptual approach to the construction of audio based in narrative structure. The sound designer does not attempt ...
  • Listen: A data sonification toolkit 

    Wilson, Catherine M; Lodha, Suresh K (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1996-11)
    Data sonification is the representation of data using sound. Although data sonification has been a subject of research for the last fifteen years, much remains to be learned about how data should be mapped to sound, what ...
  • loudSPIRE, an auditory display schema for the SPIRE system 

    LoPresti, Eric; Harris, W. Michelle (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1996-11)
    SPIRE is a system for visualizing large amounts of document-based information. Auditory display was identified as a way to supplement SPIRE's existing visual interface; however, the diversity of data did not lend itself ...
  • Investigating geometric data with sound 

    Axen, Ulrike; Choi, Insook (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1996-11)
  • DIVA virtual audio reality system 

    Huopaniemi, Jyri; Savioja, Lauri; Takala, Tapio (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1996-11)
    We have created a model of real-time audio virtual reality. This model system includes model-based sound synthesizers, geometric room-acoustics modeling, binaural auralization for headphone or loudspeaker listening, and ...
  • Design of a helical keyboard 

    Herder, Jens; Cohen, Michael (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1996-11)
  • Data sonification from the desktop: Should sound be part of standard data analysis software? 

    Flowers, John H; Buhman, Dion C; Turnage, Kimberly D (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1996-11)
    The design of auditory formats for data display is presently focused on applications for blind or visually impaired users, specialized displays for use when visual attention must be devoted to other tasks, and some innovative ...
  • CAITLIN: A musical problem auralisation tool to assist novice programmers with debugging 

    Vickers, Paul; Alty, James L (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1996-11)
    In the field of auditory display relatively little work has focused on the use of sound to aid program debugging. In this paper, we describe CAITLIN , a pre-processor for Turbo Pascal programs that musically auralises ...
