On environment of human computer interaction one more semiosis is necessary to use
a computer. It is an interpretant as computer. Users click mouse button or punch a keyboard to
order computer to do something. This user’s performances are converted to digitized signal or
sign, through which the CPU of the system accomplishes the task. User’s performance and the
system’s reaction co-occur. For example, if a user punches a key letter ‘G’ by using a word
processor program, at the same time letter ‘G’ appears on a monitor. Punching a key is a sign
that users give to the system, and letter ‘G’ on monitor is also sign. In HCI environment, users
and systems share signs and objects (Figure5).

Auditory interfaces (verbal message, earcon, auditory icon) are signs which is used for
improving usability. They represent some events on operating a computer so that they can be
applied to one of ten classes of sign that Peirce referred.
A verbal message can be a dicent symbol legisign. Suppose that some e-mail is
received at mail-box in my computer system. The computer system says to me “A mail is
received, now.” This linguistic message is a symbol. Speaking of pronouncing the words “A
mail is received, now” are replicas as meaning of receiving an e-mail on the using a computer.
