We announce to you the launch of our web experiment Freesound Taxonomies on an sound taxonomy for Freesound.
The Freesound Taxonomies experiment is a listening test in which you are asked to categorize a number of sounds into a set of “categories”. These categories belong to a new taxonomy that we are designing to aid the sound description process in Freesound. The purpose of the experiment is to understand whether or not our taxonomy is clear and understandable for a general audience, and how suitable it is for being integrated with Freesound. Your participation will help us to enhance the sound description process in Freesound, to improve our understanding on audio taxonomies and, more generally, to improve audio analysis in Freesound.
Your input is valuable to us and we appreciate your effort in completing the experiment. It should not take more than 15-20 minutes. To participate in the experiment please follow this link:
In addition, you can share your thoughts about the experiment and sound taxonomies in this forum thread.
on behalf of the Freesound team,
Penny and Frederic
