Mobile Dating Application for Blinds Based on Vocal Attractiveness

Sudhathai Mankar, Yachai Limpiyakorn

Abstract— Vocal attractiveness is an important social evaluation. Attractive voices are judged to be more persuasive and more socially desirable. This paper thus proposes an approach of mate selection for blinds based on vocal attractiveness. To support the accessibility, the mobile application is developed using the framework of Android Application Standard Developer Interface Guidelines. The K-means algorithm is also used to partition the data of voice pitch into three clusters of tones of voice. Once the blind users hit the intriguing voice, they can interact with the voice owner via the instant messaging service provided by mobile devices.

Index Terms— vocal attractiveness, k-means, mobile application, blind date, accessibility.
