We want you to take part in a listening test

Hi everyone,

As you may know, we do lots of listening tests (audio evaluation experiments) to evaluate our research, or to gather data about perception and preference that we use in the systems we create.

We would like to invite you to participate in a study on the perception of sound effects.

Participation just requires a computer with audio output, a reliable internet connection and internet browser (definitely works on Chrome, should work on most other browsers). The experiment shouldn’t take more than a half hour at most. You don’t have to be an expert to take part. And I promise it will be interesting!

You can access the experiment by going to http://webprojects.eecs.qmul.ac.uk/ee08m037/WebAudioEvaluationTool/test.html?url=FXiveTest.xml

And if you’re curious, the listening test was created using the Web Audio Evaluation Tool, https://github.com/BrechtDeMan/WebAudioEvaluationTool [1,2].

Please direct any questions to joshua.reiss@qmul.ac.uk , r.selfridge@qmul.ac.uk or h.e.tez@qmul.ac.uk .

Once the experiment is finished, I’ll share the results in another blog entry.
