A chatspace was developed that allows conversation
with 3D sound using networked streaming in a shared virtual
environment. The system provides an interface to advanced audio
features, such as a "whisper function" for conveying a confided audio
stream. This study explores the use of spatial audio to
enhance a user's experience in multiuser virtual environments.
