This paper explores using non-linguistic vocalization as an
additional modality to augment digital pen input on a tablet
computer. We investigated this through a set of novel interaction
techniques and a feasibility study. Typically, digital pen users
control one or two parameters using stylus position and
sometimes pen pressure. However, in many scenarios the user can
benefit from the ability to continuously vary additional
parameters. Non-linguistic vocalizations, such as vowel sounds,
variation of pitch, or control of loudness have the potential to
provide fluid continuous input concurrently with pen interaction.
We present a set of interaction techniques that leverage the
combination of voice and pen input when performing both
