    Auditory information is an important channel for the visually impaired. Effective sonification (the use of non-speech audio to convey information) promotes equal working opportunities for people with vision impairments by helping them explore data collections for problem solving and decision making. Interactive sonification systems can make georeferenced data accessible to people with vision impai... View full abstract»

    We examine the use of auditory display for ubiquitous computing to extend the boundaries of human-computer interaction (HCI). Our design process is based on listening tests, gathering free-text identification responses from participants. The responses and their classifications indicate how accurately sounds are identified and help us identify possible metaphors and mappings of sound to human actio... View full abstract»

  • Sonification of probabilistic feedback through granular synthesis

    Publication Year: 2005, Page(s):45 - 52

    We describe a method to improve user feedback, specifically the display of time-varying probabilistic information, through asynchronous granular synthesis. We have applied these techniques to challenging control problems as well as to the sonification of online probabilistic gesture recognition. We're using these displays in mobile, gestural interfaces where visual display is often impractical. View full abstract»

    Research shows that it enhances users' perception to present stimuli in two modalities simultaneously (for example, with speech perception). In our experiments, we use sonification to transform parameters of human movement patterns into sound to enhance perception accuracy. This article also presents further features of the human perceptual system like multisensory integration and perceptual strea... View full abstract»

    Balancing a ball along a tillable track is a control metaphor for a variety of continuous control tasks. The authors designed the Ballancer experimental tangible interface to exploit such a metaphor. Direct, model-based sonification of the rolling ball improves the experience and effectiveness of the interaction. View full abstract»

    The authors introduce a device for the parametric sonification of electroencephalographic (EEC) data. The device allows auditory feedback of multiple EEG characteristics in real time. Six frequency bands are assigned as instruments from a MIDI device. The time-dependent parameters modulate the timing, pitch, and volume of the instruments. Using this, we studied subjects' ability to perform a discr... View full abstract»

    The authors use 3D sound to help navigate an immersive virtual environment and report results of user tests obtained with a game-like application. The results show that auditory cues help in navigation, and auditory navigation is possible even without any visual feedback. The best performance is obtained in audiovisual navigation where auditory cues indicate the approximate direction and visual cu... View full abstract»
