We present an Augmented Reality (AR) system to support
collaborative tasks in a shared real-world interaction space
by facilitating joint attention. The users are assisted by information about their interaction partner's field of view both visually and acoustically. In our study, the audiovisual improvements are compared with an AR system without these support mechanisms in terms of the participants' reaction times and error rates. The participants performed a simple object-choice task we call the gaze game to ensure controlled experimental conditions. Additionally, we asked the subjects to fill in a questionnaire to gain subjective feedback from them. We were able to show an improvement for both dependent variables as well as positive feedback for the visual augmentation in the questionnaire.
