A PC-based sound reproduction system, called PC-VRAS control, has been developed which is linked to virtual environments rendered by Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) and provides spatially synchronized three-dimensional sound with the VRML scene. A listener can explore the VRML scene at will. The surrounding sound is synchronized and automatically re-synthesized with each step taken by the listener in real time. The control is built on ActiveX technologies and runs on the Internet Explorer browser window. All processing is done by software that runs on a standard personal computer, so there is no need for any special device.
