What is sound masking?
Sound masking is the addition of an unobtrusive background sound, similar to airflow, to reduce the intelligibility of human speech and reduce distractions. The resulting environment leads to greater productivity and increased privacy and comfort.

How does adding sound increase privacy and reduce distractions?
Speech Privacy is the inability of an unintentional listener to understand someone’s words. The higher the privacy index, the more confidential the speaker’s conversation becomes. When someone’s conversation is clearly understood, the speech becomes a distraction and the speaker has less privacy. With the addition of Qt® sound masking, the speaker’s voice becomes less intelligible. Their voice becomes less of a distraction and their privacy increases.
