We are endeavouring to establish whether musical feedback is useful in helping novice Pascal programmers to debug their programs. This involves auralizing or audiolizing a program so that one is able to hear, through a musical framework, its execution. It is thought that an audio representation (auditory display) of a program will enable a programmer to recognise patterns and behaviours not otherwise apparent with more traditional visual display techniques.

Go to the CAITLIN homepage to read more about this work.

Auditory display research has its own collection of technical terms and coined words. I have collated most of the terms that are of particular interest to researchers in this field and have put them into a lexicon. If you wish to add anything to the lexicon then please do get in touch.
