An Evaluation of Three Sound Mappings through the Localization Behavior of the Eyes

Document Thumbnail

Sonification of objects is an important research field that allows us to present graphical forms to people who have low vision, or who are blind. This paper presents some preliminary results of the study an approach to the problem of objective recording of subjective sound image. Sonification of the same graphic objects was based on amplitude panning method through three different sound mappings. Visualization of auditory localization strategies was carried out through SMI EyeLink Gaze Tracking system. The evaluation showed that audio stimuli cause a smaller irritation than cognitive control of eye behavior in absence of visual stimulus. Therefore, we suggest that eye tracking cannot directly be used as a criterion of sound mapping efficiency.
