This chapter reviews recent advances in computer audio processing from the viewpoint of improving the human-computer interface. Microphone arrays are described as basic tools for untethered audio acquisition, and principles for the synthesis of realistic virtual audio are outlined. The influence of room acoustics on audio acquisition and production is also considered. The chapter finishes with a review of several relevant signal processing systems, including a fast head-related transfer function (HRTF) measurement system and a complete system for capture, visualization, and reproduction of auditory scenes.
