Paper Effects of Feedback, Mobility and Index of Difficulty on Deictic Spatial Audio Target Acquisition in the Horizontal Plane
Deictic acquisition of feedback marked 3D-audio targets is effective in standing and mobile situations without increasing workload, users maintaining 73% of their walking speed. Mobility degrades interaction performance by 20%.
