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