    • Dynamical resonances and synchronization of auditory stimuli and evoked reponses in multi-channel EEG 

      Mayer-Kress, Gottfried (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1994-11)
      Perceptions of complex structures or other cognitive events are associated with synchronous oscillation of neural cell assemblies which take place in the 40 Hz domain and last for about 100 ms. We use EEG signals from 31 ...
    • Design and evaluation of an auditory glance at algebra for blind readers 

      Stevens, R.D; Brewster, S.A; Wright, P.C; Edwards, A.D.N (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1994-11)
      An overview or glance is important in planning the reading process. Such a high-level view is not possible for a blind person when reading by listening. This paper describes the sonification of algebra notation to provide ...
    • LSL: A specification language for program auralization 

      Mathur, Aditya P.; Boardman, David B.; Khandelwal, Vivek (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1994-11)
      The need for specification of sound patterns to be played during program execution arises in contexts where program auralization is useful. We present a language named LSL (Listen Speciikation Language) designed for ...
    • Out to lunch: Further adventures monitoring background activity 

      Cohen, Jonathan (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1994-11)
      The sound of keystrokes and mouse clicks generated by a number of computer users gives coworkers a sense of "group awarenessn-a feeling that other people are nearby and an impression of how busy they are. L'OutToLunch," a ...
    • Measuring HRTFs in a reflective environment 

      Abel, Jonathan S; Foster, Scott (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1994-11)
      Virtual audio displays control the apparent location of sound sources by applying left-ear and right-ear filters designed to mimic the acoustic properties of the human torso, head, and pinnae. These filters, called ...
    • MagicMikes - multiple aerial probes for sonification of spatial datasets 

      Grohn, Matti; Takala, Tapio (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1994-11)
      We present a method for sonification of data sets located in spatial environments in such a way that both individual point sources and overviews of larger data areas can be observed.
    • Auralization of document structure 

      Portigal, Steve; Carey, Tom (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1994-11)
      An experiment compared the effectiveness of auditory, visual, and combination cues to convey document structure. Subjects demonstrated an equivalent level of understanding of the document structure and its content with ...
    • An organization for high-level interactive control of sound 

      Das, Sumit; DeFanti, Tom; Sandin, Dan (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1994-11)
      The state of computer generated sound has advanced rapidly, and there exist many different ways of conceptualizing the abstract sound structures that comprise music and other complex organizations of sound. Many of these ...
    • Defining and redefining limits on human performance in auditory spatial displays 

      Shinn-Cunningham, Barbara; Durlach, Nathaniel (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1994-11)
      Design of an effective auditory display depends upon understanding the requirements of the task as well as understanding limitations imposed by available display technology. However, an effective display also must consider ...
    • ADSL: An auditory domain specification language for program auralization 

      Bock, Dale S (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1994-11)
      ADSL (Auditory Domain Specification Language) is a program auralization specification language which encourages users to actively diagnose software bugs as opposed to just monitoring predetermined known program events. ...
    • A centralized audio presentation system 

      Papp III, Albert L; Blattner, Meera M (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1994-11)
      The centralized audio presentation system addresses the problems which occur when multiple programs running simultaneously attempt to use the audio output of a computer system. Concurrent audio output can lead to perceptual ...
    • Factors in the design of effective auditory displays 

      Watson, Charles S; Kidd, Gary R (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1994-11)
      The design of effective auditory displays requires an understanding of both capabilities and response proclivities. This disti ctionis explained in relation to a variety of auditory tasks and a range of acoustic stimuli. ...
    • Efficient listening with two ears: Dichotic time compression and spatialization 

      Arons, Barry (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1994-11)
      To increase the amount of information we can collect in a given amount of time, it is possible to employ signal processing techniques to speed up the rate at which recorded sounds are presented to the ears. Besides simply ...
    • An evaluation of the communicative ability of auditory icons and earcons 

      Lucas, Paul A (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1994-11)
      Audio cues are increasingly used to present information in the human-computer interface. To be of use, these cues must effectively communicate the intended information to the user. An evaluation of two types of nonspeech ...
    • Effect of event variations and sound duration on identification of everyday sound 

      Ballas, James A (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1994-11)
      Experimental data on sound perception are presented on two issues: what aspects of a complex sound with several transients are important for accurate identification, and how much of a sound must be heard to identify it. ...
    • Auditory direct manipulation of acoustical objects by blind computer users 

      Boelke, Ludger; Gorny, Peter (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 1994-11)
