Abstract: Modern telepresence systems constitute a new challenge for quality assessment of multimedia signals. This paper focuses on the evaluation of the reverberation impairment for audioband speech signals. A review on the reverberation effect is presented, with emphasis given on the mathematical modeling of its components, including early reflections and late reverberation. A subjective test for evaluating the human perception of the reverberation phenomenon is completely described, from its conception to the final results. Analyses are provided comparing the average subjective grades to current quality-evaluation standards for speech and audio signals. It is observed that the PESQ and PEAQ objective algorithms constitute interesting starting points for developing an objective method for measuring the reverberation effect on speech signals.
