We present a spatial audio display technique that overcomes the presentation rate bottleneck of traditional monaural audio displays. Our compact speech display works by encoding message semantics intothe acoustic spatialisation. In user testing, this display facilitated better recall of events than a conventional small screen visual display. Moreover,results showed that this mapping aided in the recall of the absolute position of events — as opposed to merely their relative orders — in a temporally ordered data set.
