We decided to try to graph sonification, and use non-speech audio to convey data trends. By implementing a simple sonification that generated tones with frequencies that changed depending on the value of the current data point within the graph’s minimum and maximum, we allowed users to listen to live data and then “play back” graph sonifications of already-recorded data (source code). In short, we translated points on the graph to musical notes!
