With the evolution of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), the society gradually became audiovisual - the picture and sound have become part of a communication module which the individuals are becoming more adept, the Human-Computer Interface (HCI). Recognizing the HCI as an integrating element of media and visual, sound and tactile metaphors, this study will demonstrate investigations that contextualize the role of sound into interactive environments by proposing a better approach for the term ‘interactive sound’. Commonly, audio elements belonging to an interactive system can react to a user´s input, but there’s another group of sounds that can be started by parameters that aren’t directly manipulated by the user. These two different situations represent two different types of sounds into interactive systems. This study aims to expose a better approach for these types of sounds, proposing its classification into direct-interactive and indirect-adaptative sounds, as well as pointing out its meanings and applications.
