Authors: Gulliver, SR

Abstract: This paper investigates how variance in multimedia video clip type affects quality of perception (QoP) for users ith and without hearing loss. QoP encompasses not only a user's satisfaction with the quality of a multimedia presentation (subjective), but also his or her ability to analyse, synthesise and assimilate its’ informational content objective). Results show that clip type has a significant impact on the level of deaf information assimilation. Results uggest that certain video content aids deaf information assimilation, for example: those with less textual content. However, it was found that audio / captioned information does not significantly impact user QoP, when Video-textual (VT) information was found to have a significant effect on both hearing and deaf QoP. A positive correlation was found between predicted level of information assimilation and level of enjoyment, independent of hearing level or clip type.
