Journal Paper Accepted at JMUI

Our journal paper entitled “Audio-Haptic Interfaces for Digital Audio Workstations: A Participatory Design Approach” has been accepted for publication in the Journal on Multimodal User Interfaces


We examine how auditory displays, sonification and haptic interaction design can support visually impaired sound engineers, musicians and audio production specialists access to digital audio workstation. We describe a user-centred approach that incorporates various participatory design techniques to help make the design process accessible to this population of users. We also outline the audio-haptic designs that results from this process and reflect on the benefits and challenges that we encountered when applying these techniques in the context of designing support for audio editing.
