Theoretical Foundations For Integrating Sound In Interactive Interfaces: Identifying Temporal And Spatial Information Conveyance Principles
Audio; Interactive systems; Spatial; Temporal; Training
This paper proposes theoretical foundations for conveying temporal (i.e. relating to time) and spatial (i.e. relating to space) information using auditory cues in interactive systems. Three theoretical models are developed to aid the design of auditory interfaces, including an audio integration model that outlines an endto-end process for adding sounds to interactive interfaces, a temporal audio model that provides a framework for when to integrate these sounds to meet certain performance objectives and a spatial audio model that provides a framework for adding spatialisation cues to interface sounds. The models presented in this paper, which are each coupled with a set of design guidelines theorised from the literature, put forward a structured process for integrating sounds in interactive interfaces. © 2009 Taylor & Francis.
