Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
late 14c., "the action of hearing," from Old French audience, from Latin audentia "a hearing, listening," from audientum (nominative audiens), present participle of audire "to hear," from PIE compound *au-dh- "to perceive physically, grasp," from root *au- "to perceive" (cognates: Greek aisthanesthai "to feel;" Sanskrit avih, Avestan avish "openly, evidently;" Old Church Slavonic javiti "to reveal"). Meaning "formal hearing or reception" is from late 14c.; that of "persons within hearing range, assembly of listeners" is from early 15c. (French audience retains only the older senses). Sense transferred 1855 to "readers of a book." Audience-participation (adj.) first recorded 1940.
n. 1 (context now rare English) hearing; the condition or state of hearing or listening. (from 14th c.) 2 A group of people within hearing; specifically, a large gathering of people listening to or watching a performance, speech, etc. (from 15th c.)
n. a gathering of spectators or listeners at a (usually public) performance; "the audience applauded"; "someone in the audience began to cough"
the part of the general public interested in a source of information or entertainment; "every artist needs an audience"; "the broadcast reached an audience of millions"
an opportunity to state your case and be heard; "they condemned him without a hearing"; "he saw that he had lost his audience" [syn: hearing]
An audience is a group of people who participate in a show or encounter a work of art, literature (in which they are called "readers"), theatre, music (in which they are called "listeners"), video games (in which they are called "players"), or academics in any medium. Audience members participate in different ways in different kinds of art; some events invite overt audience participation and others allowing only modest clapping and criticism and reception.
Media audience studies have become a recognized part of the curriculum. Audience theory offers scholarly insight into audiences in general. These insights shape our knowledge of just how audiences affect and are affected by different forms of art. The biggest art form is the mass media. Films, video games, radio shows, software (and hardware), and other formats are affected by the audience and its reviews and recommendations.
In the age of easy Internet participation and citizen journalism, professional creators share space, and sometimes attention, with the public. American journalist Jeff Jarvis said, "Give the people control of media, they will use it. The corollary: Don't give the people control of media, and you will lose. Whenever citizens can exercise control, they will." Tom Curley, President of the Associated Press, similarly said, "The users are deciding what the point of their engagement will be — what application, what device, what time, what place."

Audience is a 1991 play by British playwright Michael Frayn.
The play works on the idea that the characters in the play are actually watching the audience, expecting them to perform. The playwright of the "play" is also in the audience. The comedy ensues as Frayn holds a mirror up to the audience and they see their our own foibles as audience members. The characters are Joan, an elderly woman who is in her sixties and not entirely focused on the play with her daughter, Helena, in her forties. Charles pays more attention to his companion than the play. His companion, Amanda, is terrified of seeing anyone she knows with Charles. Bobbie is an American lady in her fifties who is with her husband, Merrill, in his seventies and is also American. Quentin is a drama teacher who is with a drama student, Lee, who doesn't want to be there. Eileen, Reginald and Wendy are a family. Wendy does not want to be there but it is her birthday treat.
Audience is an American mobile voice and audio-processing company based in Mountain View, California, and is one of the 34 founding members of The Open Handset Alliance. They specialize in improving voice clarity and noise suppression for a broad range of consumer products, including cellular phones, mobile devices and PCs.
Audience is the first company to have reverse-engineered the human hearing system and model its processes onto a chip, enabling computers and mobile devices to use the same kind of “auditory intelligence” that humans employ. By using this technology in conjunction with two or more microphones, background noise is suppressed, improving the quality of the remaining voice and reducing distraction for the listener. This technology mimics the “ cocktail party effect”.
In 2010, Audience partnered with HTC to integrate their noise suppression technology into the Google Nexus One smartphone. The next year AT&T introduced eight different handsets powered by Audience's earSmart technology including the Samsung Galaxy S III Skyrocket and the HTC Vivid.
In 2013, Audience unveiled its eS515, a combination voice processor and audio codec. This single slot solution enables device manufacturers to streamline their designs, negating the need for a separate voice processor and codec.
Audience magazine is an American literary quarterly founded in June 2004 as an ezine. It first appeared in print in June, 2006 (and as an ezine). The editor-in-chief of Audience is M.
