Training Versus Practice in Spatial Audio Attribute Evaluation Tasks
Listener training in published studies has tended to focus on simple repetitive practice of experimental tasks without feedback. Time savings in listening panel selection and training could be accomplished if a more general training system could be used and applied to a variety of tasks. In order for a training system for spatial audio listening skills to prove effective, it must demonstrate that learned skills are transferable and it must compare favourably with repetitive practice on specific tasks. A novel study to compare a training system with repetitive practice has been extended to include a total of 48 subjects. Transfer is assessed and practice and training are compared against a control group for tasks involving transfer of spatial audio training.
