Sound is a well-suited means to increase the bandwidth of man-machine-communication. Especially in combination with graphics it can help significantly to interprete the visual presentation and cut down operators'response times. Sonification - turning data into audible information - can be successfully applied to scientific visualization as well as virtual reality applications. An implementation of sonification modules and tools within the apE dataflow visualization systems and the integration of sound in a development platform for virtual worlds demonstrate the application of the introduced concepts and tools. As print media are ill-suited for aural presentations a video supplement of the results is provided and an integral part of this work.
