Abstract [en]

Previous research has shown that auditory icons can be effective warnings. The aim of this study was to determine the number of auditory icons that can be learned, in a control room context. The participants in the study consisted of 14 control room operators and 15 people who were not control room operators. The participants were divided into three groups. Prior to the testing the three groups practiced on 10, 20 and 30 different sounds. Each group was tested using the sounds that they had practiced. The results support the potential for learning and recalling a large number of auditory icons, as many as 30. The results also show that sounds with similar characteristics are easily confused.
