Aiming to expose guidelines and procedures that lead to an efficient implementation of sound elements into interfaces, and given the need to develop a formal understanding of audio applications in interactive systems, this study presents the Dynamic Audio Application Guide. From the proposed methodology by Jesse James Garrett, the Dynamic Audio Application Guide was created, which aims to systematize and simplify the process of creation, production and implementation of sound into interactive systems. The guide is intended to highlight the important role played by sound in immersion and interaction processes.
