The potential utility of dividing the information flowing from computer to human among several sensory modalities is investigated by means of a rigorous experiment which compares the effectiveness of auditory and visual cues in the performance of a visual search task. The results indicate that a complex auditory cue can be used to replace cues traditionally(More)
Advances in multimedia, virtual reality, and immersive environments have expanded humancomputer interaction beyond text and vision t o include touch, gestures, voice, and 3D sound. Although welldeveloped single modalities for communication already exist, we do not really understand the general problem of designing integrated multimodal systems. We explore t(More)
Effective use of multimedia collections requires efficient and intuitive methods of searching and browsing. This work considers databases which store music and explores how these may best be searched by providing input queries in some musical form. For the average person, humming several notes of the desired melody is the most straightforward method for(More)
We present a new approach to multimodal systems development that enables end-user applications to present information in alternative modalities, thereby making them useful even in situations where the default output modality is unacceptable to the user. We discuss the implementation of a software framework for constructing multimodal applications using the(More)
