Allow Visualized Sound Data as a Name

      Disclosed is an invention that allows the use of visualized
sound data as an alternate file name.  Users can check approximate
content without seeing or listening to the data itself and can select
a small set of appropriate files from many files.

      To know the content of sound data without actually listening to
the sound, the data is usually visualize.  This invention is to allow
use of the visualized sound data itself as an alternate file name
(this alternate file name is called "color bar name" from now on.)
The following examples show that a user may see a list of file names
shown using character names and the same information using Color bar
names.
