|Abstract: ||We describe the design and use of AUDIOGRAPH - a tool
for investigating the use of music in the communication of
graphical information to blind and partially sighted users.
This paper examines the use of the system to communicate
complex diagrams and gives some examples of user output.
Performance is not as good as expected and it is postulated
that context will play an important part in the perception of
diagrams communicated using music. A set of experiments
are reported which indicate that context does indeed seem
to play an important role in assisting meaningful
understanding of the diagrams communicated. The
implications for using music in auditory interface design
