    ABSTRACT

    Although research on non-visual access to visualisations is steadily growing, very little work has investigated strategies for constructing such forms of representation through non-visual means. This paper describes the design of two interaction strategies for constructing and manipulating relational diagrams in audio. We report on a study that compared the two strategies, and discuss their advantages and disadvantages in terms of how efficiently they support the activity of constructing diagrams in an audio-only interface.
