switchboardI was using the vOICe to find the switch board in a conference room to plug-in my laptop. It was very tough especially since that part of the room was poorly lit.
tagged-squareAt long last, I was finally able to try tagging a soundscape. I took a basic rectangle and, using audio editing software, namely goldwave, I was able to mix my audio tags into the soundscape.
Since this is a proof of concept, I have only tagged the verticle sides of the rectangle. Tagging the horizontal sides is tricky since they are rendered as a single long beat. If you listen carefully, you will be able to make out that there are actually two notes representing the upper and lower sides. However, I have not found any easy way of tagging these. The idea behind the tagging is to add labels to soundscapes just like the way labels are added to images in print.
Finally, I have played the soundscapes at the “very slow motion” setting of the vOICe. This facilitates the tagging and also helps to render the image clearly at least for new users.
my thanks to my cousin Abhishek for helping with the mixing and for drawing the rectangle.
