As knowledge about the listener experience of audio applications is fundamental in research and product design within the audio field, methods that can be used for evaluation of perceived sound quality are essential to utilize. In order to capture and quantify listener experience, different methodological approaches are implemented in listening test software.
This workshop introduces the scientific rationale behind selected test procedures. In addition, examples of software that are used to facilitate listening tests are shown, such as listener training, quality attribute generation, testing of car audio, ITU tests, etc. Following the presentations the software is demonstrated, and the audience is encouraged to get hands-on experience of the different applications.
