Our aim is to develop sonic and tactile ‘translations’ of information visualizations. Our designs are guided by an exiting possibility: What if the visual cortex is actually a spatial cortex recruited by sight, sound, and touch? Many so-called information visualizations could be thought of as presenting information spatially (‘Information Spatializations’). For example, a graph or bar chart (in a .pdf file, for example) is encoded as points connected by lines within a 2D or 3D space. Although the standard practice is to display these point and lines visually, they could also be displayed sonically (via spatial sound) or tactilely (as raised points and lines on a surface). Because of the ubiquitous sound capabilities on consumer computational devices, our initial prototypes demonstrate sonic translations of everyday spark lines and bar charts.
