A simple DAW prototype that can be operated with the usual graphical user interface or with its peculiar audio-haptic interface.
The latter allows visually impaired users to interact with the program without having to look at the screen, by using haptics (through the Geomagic® Touch™ Haptic Device) and sound (speech as well as non-speech).
It supports cut/copy/paste of audio clips and automation graphs of gain and panning. It is not really meant to be used for real tasks but rather to test out cross-modal approaches of interacting with DAW's. It features several sonifications and "haptifications" of different aspects of DAW's that are often inaccessible to visually impaired users.
- Waveform selection
- Waveform peaks
- Automation envelopes
Its sonification of peaks underlies the sonification techniques used in the Accessible Peak Meter audio plug-in.
