    • 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 ...
    • A virtual audio guidance and alert system for commercial aircraft operations

      Dufresne, Aude; Martial, Odile; Ramstein, Cristophe; Mabilleau, Phillipe (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1996-11)
    • What does pink sound like? Designing the audio interface for the TaIOS 

      Dougherty, Tom (International Community on Auditory DisplayGeorgia Institute of Technology, 1996-11)
      This paper discusses the design considerations of an auditory interface for an operating system with a graphic user interface. The Cutting Edge Scenario, the last publicly shown Taligent OS demo, illustrates certain audio ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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)
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Presenting HTML structure in audio: User satisfaction with audio hypertext 

      James, Frankie (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)
