In this paper, focusing on the writing sound when using an ordinary paper and pen, we explain how auditory feedback augments the act of writing. Specifically, we evaluated the effectiveness of the auditory feedback by comparing writing tasks, which involved tracing Chinese characters, Without Feedback (No), with Monaural Feedback (MF), and Stereo Feedback (SF). The results of this study showed that auditory feedback (MF and SF) of writing produced more written characters than Without Feedback (No) and had fewer negative impressions during the writing task.
