Lesson Goals

This module provides examples of different non-visual displays and discusses their advantages and disadvantages as a means of conveying information to the user. Particular emphasis will be given to auditory displays, as these are the next most frequently used after visual displays. This module also provides examples of other non-visual displays, designed for the sense of touch or smell. Also, addressed is the need for redundancy, that is, integrating more than one sense modality into display design.

At the end of the module, the learner should know when and why non-visual displays are appropriate to replace or augment visual displays.
