Sound quality assessment

Our goals may not be converging after all then. The reason ACX requires such high quality MP3 submission is so they can resubmit later at a lower bit rate. If a speaker/presenter delivers at the lowest possible rate, that’s the end of the story. The show can’t be adapted to any other application or product and the work stream drops dead.

Our 10,000 foot goal is a product that users can apply to their show in order to meet ACX compliance.

You will find that there’s significant problem with finding out what ACX compliance is and further, how to measure it, and then, way at the end, how to correct the work.

As if that wasn’t enough, we have the problem of people producing a show that will never make compliance whether through annoying echoes, high noise level or excessive distortion. What do you do then?

Here’s a mere 30 chapter forum discussion of the problems Ian had in getting Submission Ready. It’s not the only one.
