Showing Speech – Sound Effects

Notes

Sounds are used to help convey meaning and explain the mathematics.

For example, higher and lower pitches might be applied to superscripts and subscripts to help indicate the relative position. Other examples of sound effects that might be applied to math expressions could be a "ding," "beep," or another tonal indicator that denotes the start and/or end of a particular function.
