This paper describes an experiment related to human audio visual perception under different degrees of distraction. In an audio visual subjective assessment we asked subjects to rate an auditory parameter while being distracted with an n-back working memory task. Unlike in previously published experiments, both rating and task took place in the same modality. The analysis of the data obtained indicates that the precision with which auditory parameters can be rated by humans is dependent on the degree of distraction in the same modality.
