Conclusion
The main concern of this study is to find which auditory interface of the three can be
applied to categories of signs in Peiercian semiotics. I think that this categorization provides useful
methods for evaluating auditory interfaces’ usability. According to the sign production theory, a
sign should be reproduced as something socially exchangeable and to achieve an objective stage of
interpretation. In this sense, interfaces with verbal messages would have higher degrees of usability,

interpretation of abstract metaphors and emotional inspirations. In other words, since users may
