Mappings and metaphors in auditory displays: An experimental assessment
Walker, Bruce N.
MetadataShow full item record
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 on different mappings and metaphors in a generic process-control task environment with reaction time and accuracy as dependent measures. It is hoped that this area of investigation will lead to the development of mapping guidelines applicable to auditory displays in a wide range of task domains. Some keywords in this paper include mapping, metaphor, and guidelines.
