1.2 File description:
run.m/run_image.m: main control file. Read an audio or image as input, convert to binary sequence
format, then send to acoustic channel, reconstruct the signal after transmission, and play the audio or
show the image.
ofdm_experiment_acoustic_channel.m: OFDM transmission over acoustic channel.
qam_demod.m/qam_mod.m: QAM demodulate and modulate file.
Ber.m/ser.m: calculate BER and SER.
Image_file.mat/media_file.mat: an image and an audio signal used for testing.

Part 2 Estimation of communication system parameters

2.1 The acoustic channel is time-varying. Though the training frames are used to compensate this channel
influence, result goes worse when the size of OFDM packet grows; but too small the OFDM packet size is,
transmission rate decrease. So the first experiment is the exploration on size of OFDM packet to establish
a proper size.

Part 3 Communication system evaluation

3.1 Objective evaluation
the final Bit Error Rate is 0.09, and Symbol Error Rate is 0.19.

3.2 subjective evaluation
