11 March 2005 Face Player: a qualitative sonification for the visually impaired
Author Affiliations +
This paper describes the development of a system for mapping the features of the human face to sound. In order to determine how best to express these qualities, magnitude estimation experiments are performed with young visually impaired students. The data dimensions used are overall head ratio (as a size measure) and distance between key facial features. The display dimensions are frequency and tempo.
