Haddad, Richard A., and Thomas W. Parsons. Digital Signal Processing:
Theory, Applications, and Hardware. ISBN 0-7167-8206-5. Computer Science
An excellent (but sometimes difficult) book covering a wide variety of
topics including numerical operations (convolution, Fourier Transform),
digital representation of speech, filters (FIR and IIR), FFTs, DSP algorithms,
applications (speech, synthesis, recognition, image processing), and some
descriptions of DSP chips (mainly from Texas Instruments).
Handel, S. Listening: An Introduction to the Perception of Auditory
Events. Cambridge, MA: MIT press, 1989.
This book includes in one source broad and detailed coverage of auditory
topics including sound production (especially by musical instruments and
by voice), propagation, modelling, and the physiology of the auditory system.
It covers parallels between speech and music throughout.

In Handbook of Perception and Human Performance, edited by K. R.
Boff, L. Kaufman, and J. P. Thomas, Chap. 26. New York: Wiley, 1986.
The authors focus on topics related to the capacity to process auditory
information including attention and memory, and factors that mediate processing
capacity such as noise and aging.

Techniques for auditory monitoring and analysis of seismic data are described.
Previous published work is limited to two papers now nearly 30 years old.
This paper broadens the applications from the discrimination problem of
earthquakes and nuclear explosions to training, quality control, free oscillation
display, data discovery, large data set display, even recognition, education,
model matching, signal detection,a nd onset timing. Simple processing techniques
including interpolation, time compression, automatic gain control, frequency
doubleing, audio annotation and markers, looping, and stereo are used to
create seven audio data sets.

Howard, J. H., Jr., and J. A. Ballas. "Syntactic and Semantic Factors
in the Classification of Nonspeech Transient Patterns." Percep. &
Psycho. 28 (1980): 431--439.
The authors present the results of three experiments conducted to assess
the role of syntactic (i.e., temporal) and semantic (i.e., knowledge) factors
in the classification of sequences of brief sounds. Their results indicate
that both factors and their interaction are important. Previous research
has shown these to be important in speech and language perception. These
studies demonstrate their importance in nonspeech sound perception.

This journal publishes original studies about people in relation to machines
and environments. Auditory display studies are published only occasionally
but usually address the effectivness of the auditory display within the
context of a human-machine system.

This paper argues that direct manipulation systems (now often referred
to as "GUI") are valuable because they minimize semantic and articulatory
distances between humans and computers.
