Computer Games and Multichannel Audio Quality - The Effect of Division of Attention between Auditory and Visual Modalities
The effect of division of attention between the evaluation of multichannel audio quality and involvement in a visual task (playing a computer game) was investigated. It was observed that involvement in a visual task may significantly change the results obtained during evaluation of audio quality for some listeners and for some experimental conditions. It was also found that this effect is listener-specific and the global effect observed after averaging the results across all listeners is small but significant.
