Abstract

Visual presentation of information on small screen devices such as mobile telephones or PDAs is supplemented by aural information through stereophonic inputs. Informational data and control objects can be located and distinguished in the aural presentation space by the use of characteristic sounds, their direction and intensity, and by text to audio conversion and vice versa.
