The aim of this paper is to introduce the natural abilities that humans have in the perception of multi channel audio environments, and explore ways that they can be utilized for comprehension and learning purposes. Background information about audio perception as a whole is explored to set up the foundation for this topic, and the potential increase in comprehension is demonstrated through two experiments related to multi channel audio. Recommendations for the implementation of these systems based on existing technologies and possibilities in the future are also explained to promote further research and development in the area.
