Audio interfaces for mobile and wearable computing are in an early state of development. User studies concentrate on the usability of audio interfaces as means of interacting with a device but leave out the question of how an audio interface can aid at performing a main task. Studying the impact of audio interfaces in computer aided tasks for wearable and mobile computing will provide guidelines for hands-free interface design and information presentation. To be able to measure the performance
