Auditory Spatial Cueing in Visual Search Tasks: Effects of Amplitude, Contrast, and Duration
Published October 09, 1995 by Human Factors and Ergonomics Society in United States
The effectiveness of auditory spatial cues in visual search performance was examined in three experiments. Auditory spatial cues are more effective than abrupt visual onsets when the target appears in the peripheral visual field or when the contrast of the target is degraded. The duration of the auditory spatial cue did not affect search performance.
