Auditory navigation cues for a small 2D grid: A case study of the memory game
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents an investigation on auditory navigation in a two-dimensional grid. A sonification of the memory game is proposed and utilized for evaluating user's ability to interact with objects in a small 2-D grid based on sound only. After a short review of the basic game, we start from the idea of replacing each picture under a card by a sound. Subsequently, we present the necessary sonification steps to obtain an eyes-free version of the game. We also propose some slight modifications to the rules of the game to make this audio version more attractive for gaming. This game is used as a case study for auditory user interface testing focusing on auditory navigation in the grid.
