Specifically, we are studying how this type of presentation can support engagement with health information, and the effective interpretation and recall of data. In order to explore the possible influence of sound in understanding important health risk messages, a 3-arm pilot randomised control (participant-blinded) trial was designed. We compared a visual presentation augmented by sonification, music and interaction with a simple visual presentation and a visual presentation augmented by simple user interaction.
