Simultaneous Manipulation of Parameters of Auditory Icons to Convey Direction, Size, and Distance: Effects on Recognition and Interpretation

Catherine J. Stevens, David Brennan, Simon Parker
2004 International Conference on Auditory Display  
There was a significant effect of icon type and parameter manipulation: dog bark was the most easily recognized icon, and the direction parameter interpreted most accurately.  ...  Sixty adult listeners were asked to recognize and describe four auditory icons wherein object size, distance and direction of motion were captured in the parameters of each 1-second sound.  ...  Our aim is to investigate the ease with which listeners with minimal training can recognize and interpret four auditory icons whose acoustic parameters convey identity, size, distance and direction of  ...

The SonicFinder: An Interface That Uses Auditory Icons

William Gaver
1989 Human-Computer Interaction  
I discuss sound effects and source metaphors as methods of extending auditory icons beyond the limitations implied by literal mappings, and speculate on future directions for such interfaces.  ...  These advantages seem to be due to the iconic nature of the mappings used between sound and the information it is to convey.  ...  Support was also provided by funds from the Affiliates of Cognitive Science at UCSD and by contract N00014-79-C-0323, NR 667-437 to Donald A.  ...

Overview of auditory representations in human-machine interfaces

Ádám Csapó, György Wersényi
2013 ACM Computing Surveys  
The goal of this article is to survey both classical auditory representations (e.g., auditory icons and earcons) and those auditory representations that have been created as extensions to earlier approaches  ...  In recent years, a large number of research projects have focused on the use of auditory representations in a broadened scope of application scenarios.  ...  Solutions include the mapping of vertical distance from a target to pitch and horizontal distance from a target to amplitude, as well as mapping of joint movement direction to the directionality of a melody  ...
