In comics, Textual Sound Effects (TE) can describe sounds, but also actions, events, etc. TE could be used in Virtual Environment to efficiently create an easily recognizable scene and add more information to objects at a relatively low design cost. We investigate the impact of TE in a Virtual Environment on objects’ material perception (on category and properties) and on sound perception (on volume [dB] and spatial position). Participants (N=13, repeated measures) categorized metallic and wooden spheres and significantly changed their reaction time depending on the TE congruence with the spheres’ material/sound. They then rated a sphere’s properties (i.e., wetness, warmness, softness, smoothness, and dullness) and significantly changed their rating depending on the TE. When comparing 2 sound volumes, they perceived a sound associated with a shrinking TE as less loud and a sound associated with a growing TE as louder. When locating an audio source location, they located it significantly closer to a TE.
