  5. (PureData) How are they doing it? Sonification by:

  6. Learning something new... •  Out of 22 authors on >1

    publication only 5 used more than one tool •  Many people stick with the same tool •  Who has used (i.e. published with) more than one tool?
  7. Limitations •  Initially looked at: context, purpose, type of data,

    user evaluation, target user group etc. •  But often complex to define or not included in some papers •  A survey would be a good option: –  Why are people sonifying? –  Why are they using these specific tools?
