1 1 The views expressed in this paper are those of the authors and not those of IBM Canada Limited Abstract Audioconference participants often have difficulty identifying the voices of other conferees, especially in ad hoc groups of unfamiliar members. Simultaneous presentation of multiple voices through a single, monaural channel can be discordant and(More)
The modern battlefield is increasingly populated with vast amounts of electronic information. The plethora of data that can be delivered needs to be filtered, interpreted, and formatted in ways that are meaningful and useful for particular tasks and situations. Cross-modal fusion of information should be helpful in optimizing battlespace interfaces to(More)
The use of spatial audio to present voices from unique locations around a listener's head has been demonstrated to enhance the perception and cognition of auditory events for a variety of listening tasks. This paper describes experimental research to determine whether a combination of spatialization and simple visual representation of voice locations(More)
During a crisis, emergency responders must rapidly integrate information from many separate sources to satisfy their role-specific needs and to make time-sensitive decisions. Responders currently receive this information through numerous software applications and face the challenge of integrating this heterogeneous data into an all-encompassing picture.(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the voice identification benefits of visual depictions of the relative locations of spatialized talkers in a serial listening task. BACKGROUND Although spatialized audio is known to improve speech intelligibility and voice identification accuracy within multitalker environments, prior studies have not found(More)
Traditional methods of voice communication fail to adequately address the needs of users engaged in remote collaborative activities. While some emerging technologies offer greater support for these activities, they often do so at a considerable price, making them unsuitable solutions for widespread usage. To address this demand, we have developed the Vocal(More)
