In EASYLI, the factors influencing the balance between the negative and positive consequences of listening difficutties at work. Together with 4 academic and 4 non-academic partners, six doctoral candidates will be trained in this project. They will develop novel toolboxes that assess both effort expended in listening and value derived from it. These toolboxes will employ a variety of methods, including real-time acoustic scene analysis, virtual acoustics, and physiological and subjective measures. They will be used to evaluate interventions aimed to reduce the negative consequences of high listening effort, like hearing aid algorithms and new communication devices.
