Descriptive analysis (DA) considers a collection of techniques that can be used for evaluating the detailed perceptual characteristics of products or systems through listening tests. The application of DA techniques to audio has been evolving over the last few years.
This tutorial aims to provide clear guidance to the researcher and experimenter regarding the nature OF descriptive analysis (DA) and its practical application in audio. The focus will be placed on so-called consensus language methods. Guidance on the meaning of attributes and their development will be studied using consensus vocabulary DA techniques. A review of standards pertaining to such methods will be presented and with several practical examples of applications in audio.
