Abstract
The purpose of this paper is to theorize auditory interfaces as a sign system. This paper
compares the three types of auditory interfaces in personal computing environments: verbal
messages (speech sounds), earcons (musical sounds) and auditory icons (natural sounds). Relying

conceptualized verbal messages as a “dicent symbol legisign,” earcons as a “dicent indexical
