Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR SPATIAL AUDIO ADJUSTMENT
Abstract:
The present disclosure relates to managing audio signals within a user's perceptible audio environment or soundstage. That is, a computing device may provide audio signals with a particular apparent source location within a user's soundstage. Initially, a first audio signal may be spatially processed so as to be perceivable in a first soundstage zone. In response to determining a high priority notification, the apparent source location of the first audio signal may be moved to a second soundstage zone and an audio signal associated with the notification may be spatially processed so as to be perceivable in the first soundstage zone. In response to determining user speech, the apparent source location of the first audio signal may be moved to a different soundstage zone.
