Multimedia - the integration under computer control of text, still and moving images and sound, as well as the integration at another level of broadcasting, publishing and information technology - has already begun to change, and is doubtless about to change even further, the way in which information is presented, whether for education and training, business or pleasure. As with every new form of communication in its early stages of development, multimedia will inevitably go through a period of unexpected discoveries, but also of experimentation and consequent mistakes. One of the main aims of this thesis is to attempt to show, indirectly and directly, that the number of potential mistakes in the area of the use of sound in multimedia applications can be reduced by approaching the subject in an informed way, that is, by calling on the growing literature on the subject. Essentially, the thesis is therefore a critical review of the relevant literature, combined with some theoretical conclusions, and a practical guide to sound for the multimedia designer/producer. This practical guide is developed fully in the final chapter, after looking in detail at speech, music, sound effects and some other factors bearing on the subject.
