In this paper we describe a proposal based on the use of 3D sound metaphors for providing precise spatial cueing in virtual environment. A 3D sound metaphor is a combination of the audio spatialization and audio cueing techniques. The 3D sound metaphors are supposed to improve the user performance and perception. The interest of this kind of stimulation mechanism is that it could allow providing efficient 3D interaction for interactive tasks such as selection, manipulation and navigation among others. We describe the main related concepts, the most relevant related work, the current theoretical and technical problems, the description of our approach, our scientific objectives, our methodology and our research perspectives.
