Abstract

In many situations, an audible alert from a port- able device is undesirable. In high noise environ- ments the audible alert may go unnoticed, and in low noise environments the alert may be disruptive. Additionally, audible alerts afford little privacy to the user, who may wish to be alerted without the knowledge ofothers.
