Re: Listening Tests

Hi again

The goal in watermarking and low bit-rate codecs is the same: the coded
version should be indistinguishable from the original. If you check the ITU
cite you will find that ITU at the moment allows for free downloads of
three standard so try and get the BS.1116 - It will answer all (I guess :
-)) of your questions on procedure, experimental set-up, analysis of the
results etc. You should be aware that this type of test where you have
quite small perceptual differences are very difficult to conduct if you
want reliable results - so my best advise is to check the standard - it has
been used for all the published results in e.g. JAES - you could check that
Journal too.

The goal in audio watermarking is that the listener should not distinguish
any difference between the original audio from the watermarked one. Now to
test this, I mean, should a same-different test do? Are there other tests
more suitable and generously documented and has its free gui
I don't have ITU access. Thanks.
