Crowdsourcing approach for subjective evaluation of echo impairment

25 Oct 2020  ·  Ross Cutler, Babak Nadari, Markus Loide, Sten Sootla, Ando Saabas ·

The quality of acoustic echo cancellers (AECs) in real-time communication systems is typically evaluated using objective metrics like ERLE and PESQ, and less commonly with lab-based subjective tests like ITU-T Rec. P.831... We will show that these objective measures are not well correlated to subjective measures. We then introduce an open-source crowdsourcing approach for subjective evaluation of echo impairment which can be used to evaluate the performance of AECs. We provide a study that shows this tool is accurate and highly reproducible. This new tool has been recently used in the ICASSP 2021 AEC Challenge which made the challenge possible to do quickly and cost effectively. read more
