Audio-Tokens: A toolbox for rating, sorting and comparing audio samples in the browser


Here we describe a JavaScript toolbox to perform online rating studies with auditory material. The main feature of the toolbox is that audio samples are associated with visual tokens on the screen that control audio playback and can be manipulated depending on the type of rating. This allows the collection of single- and multidimensional feature ratings, as well as categorical and similarity ratings. The toolbox ( can be used via a plugin for the widely used jsPsych, as well as using plain JavaScript for custom applications. We expect the toolbox to be useful in psychological research on speech and music perception, as well as for the curation and annotation of datasets in machine learning.
