      This paper presents the Accessible Spectrum Analyser (ASA) developed as part of the DePic project (Design Patterns for Inclusive collaboration) at Queen Mary University of London. The ASA uses sonification to provide an ...
    • Satellite Gamelan: Microtonal Sonification Using a Large Consort of Mobile Phones 

      Schiemer, Greg (International Community on Auditory Display, 2016-07)
      This paper describes an approach to sonification based on an iPhone app created for multiple users to explore a microtonal scale generated from harmonics using the combination product set method devised by tuning theorist ...
    • Designing Informative Sound to Enhance A Simple Decision Task 

      Nesbitt, Keith; Williams, Paul; Ng, Patrick; Blackmore, Karen; Eidels, Ami (International Community on Auditory Display, 2016-07)
      In this paper we examined the role of informative sound in a simple decision-making game task. A within-subject experiment with 48 participants measured the response time, success rate and number of timeouts of the players ...
    • Response Techniques and Auditory Localization Accuracy 

      Iyer, Nandini; Thompson, Eric R.; Simpson, Brian D. (International Community on Auditory Display, 2016-07)
      Auditory cues, when coupled with visual objects, have lead to reduced response times in visual search tasks, suggesting that adding auditory information can potentially aid Air Force operators in complex scenarios. These ...
    • In Ear to Out There: A Magnitude Based Parameterization Scheme for Sound Source Externalization 

      Romigh, Griffin D.; Simpson, Brian D.; Iyer, Nandini (International Community on Auditory Display, 2016-07)
      While several potential auditory cues responsible for sound source externalization have been identified, less work has gone into providing a simple and robust way of manipulating perceived externalization. The current work ...
