respectfully, I wonder if any of you know about the seeing with sound
project
www.seeingwithsound.com
how does that project differ or parallel from this project?

I've found that though some people may be able to sort of keep track of many
things at once, they cannot have a conversation with two people easily at
the same time and they can not do something interactively audio while
recieving simultanious imput from another audio source.  I have also found
that even though some people seem to be able to handle multiple simultanious
inputs, they cannot sufficiently focus on one in order to provide detaled
feedback on it.

Having said this though, synthetic vision would form a gishtalt or however
you spell it and within that framework, we'd be building an environmental
image.

hello sena, smile

the trouble is, is that some can do that some can't.

I knew someone that could keep track of multiple things at one time, I went
over to visit this person, they had a t v show on, the radio, was singing a
entirely different song from either of the first two, had a book in there
lap, and was knitting, and keeping track of it all, I can't do that, its one
thing at a time, and tend to only be able to focus on the loudest or most
prevalent thing in my hearing range.

I might be able to keep a track on the transducer inducted and ear picked up
items due to the difference between the two, but I'm not even sure on that.

each person can handle different things, so I don't know...
