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 explore. In order to capture and quantify listener experience, different methodological approaches are utilized. One of the approaches involves development of individual vocabulary of test subjects. This considers a collection of techniques that can be used for evaluating the detailed perceptual characteristics of products or systems through listening tests. This workshop aims to provide guidance to the researcher and experimenter regarding the nature of descriptive analysis by means of individual vocabulary development techniques and their application in audio.
