Recent Projects - Sound Samples
This page provides a few samples of sound files that were used in a recent project entitled: Listening to Natural and Synthesized Speech while Driving: Effects on User Performance. The sound files were played to participants to examine the effect of message type (navigation, email, news story), voice type (text-to-speech, natural human voice), and earcon cueing on comprehension of messages and on driving performance.
Quicktime (.mov) and Windows Media (.wma) are our recommended sound formats. If you prefer an alternative format, MP3 is available in the second table. Otherwise, you can download a Quicktime Player, Windows Media Player, or MP3 player. If none of the formats work appropriately, please contact us.
To listen to any of the following six sample messages, click on the desired file name in the table.
