Mean Opinion Score (MOS) Overview


The Mean Opinion Score (MOS) is a measurement of the voice quality of an interaction. The calculation of MOS uses an industry standard measurement methodology to rank audio quality from 1 (unacceptable) to 5 (excellent). You can view the MOS values in the Interactions view, Agents Interactions Details view, and the Queues Interactions Detail view.
