The sound localization ability of human observers has been frequently examined in quiet environments, but there have been relatively few studies that have considered the effect of noise on sound localization. In this study, three subjects judged the perceived direction of broadband click-train signal in the quiet and in the presence of a broadband noise at(More)
<italic>Many human-computer interfaces are designed with the assumption that the user must adapt to the system, that users must be trained and their behavior altered to fit a given interface. The research presented here proceeds from the alternative assumption: Novice behavior is inherently sensible, and the computer system can be made to adapt to it.(More)
Keystroke statistics were collected on editing systems while people performed their normal work. Knowledge workers used an experimental editor, and secretaries used a word processor. Results show a consistent picture of free use patterns in both settings. Of the total number of keystrokes, text entry accounted for approximately 1/2, cursor movement for(More)
A measurably easy-to-use interface has been built using a novel technique. Novices attempted an electronic mail task using a command-line interface containing no help, no menus, no documentation, and no instruction. A hidden operator intercepted commands when necessary, creating the illusion of a true interactive session. The software was repeatedly revised(More)
While today’s aircraft have integrated alerting systems for conditions inside the aircraft (ECAM, EICAS), there is no comparable fully integrated alerting system for conditions outside of the aircraft. Current and near-future, separate alerting systems warn of conditions such as time-critical terrain, traffic, wind shear, clear air turbulence, wake(More)
Honeywell Laboratories has developed a concept for integrating multiple sources of data concerning information outside the aircraft. The concept, ANCOA (Alerting and Notification for Conditions Outside the Aircraft), was conceived as means for reducing error conflicts and establishing a clear prioritization among currently independent and disparate alerting(More)
MusicXML is a universal interchange and distribution format for common Western music notation. MusicXML’s design and development began in 2000, with the purpose to be the MP3 equivalent for digital sheet music. MusicXML was developed by Recordare and can represent music from the 17th century onwards, including guitar tablature and other music notations used(More)
This paper acknowledges the recent thrust to integrate systems on the flight deck and details a usability evaluation of a prototype concept that provides integrated alerting functionality. The ANCOA (Alerting and Notification of Conditions Outside the Aircraft) concept was conceived as means for reducing error conflicts and establishing a clear(More)
