Based on input from our team, research with blind and low-vision (BLV) students in schools, and insights learned over the past year, we have updated our auditory display for the 2015 Axial Seamount Eruption Data Nugget. We added start and end beep earcons to the data sonifications, re-recorded narration audio, and mixed underlying music, sound effects, and data sonification snippets as part of the auditory display. We also added an initial hook track and an introduction. The audio media player is below. A graph of the data is also displayed below.
Headphones are best for listening. Feel free to reach out and let us know what you think.
