Sound Design

Sound and Interaction Design

Seminar, 1.00 ECTS

 

Description

The proposed lecture contains topics related to Human Computer Interaction with Audio. Initially, user centred design theory and usability evaluation will be covered. Following the course will focus on the use of audio modality and the spatial dimension of audio in human computer interaction. Ways to present information through audio using speech and non-speech sounds as well as sonification will be presented. Perceptual and cognitive aspects of auditory scene analysis, perception of space and aspects of attention will be examined and their application into auditory display design will be discussed. How audio interacts with other senses such as vision and touch within the scope of user interface design will be discussed. Finally, interaction techniques will be presented and ways to implement them through contemporary technologies involving user tracking and sensing will be discussed.
