The effects of subpixel addressing on users' performance and preferences during reading-related tasks
Leo Gugerty, Richard A. Tyrrell, Thomas R. Aten, K. Andy Edmonds
Pages: 81-101
DOI: 10.1145/1024083.1024084
Subpixel addressing is a font-rendering technology that triples the apparent horizontal resolution of liquid crystal displays. Four experiments measured the effects of subpixel addressing (Microsoft's ClearType) relative to standard (aliased)...

Numerically estimating internal models of dynamic virtual objects
G. Robles-De-La-Torre, R. Sekuler
Pages: 102-117
DOI: 10.1145/1024083.1024085
Precise manipulation of objects is ordinarily limited by visual, kinesthetic, motor, and cognitive factors. Specially designed virtual objects and tasks minimize such limitations, making it possible to isolate and estimate the internal model that...

Auditory perception of 3D size: Experiments with synthetic resonators
Laura Ottaviani, Davide Rocchesso
Pages: 118-129
DOI: 10.1145/1024083.1024086
For representing complex data through auditory display, the ecological approach to sound perception, if combined with the most advanced techniques for physical modeling, seems to form a good strategy to translate information into sound by composition...

Understanding concurrent earcons: Applying auditory scene analysis principles to concurrent earcon recognition
David K. McGookin, Stephen A. Brewster
Pages: 130-155
DOI: 10.1145/1024083.1024087
Two investigations into the identification of concurrently presented, structured sounds, called earcons were carried out. One of the experiments investigated how varying the number of concurrently presented earcons affected their identification. It...
