Paper Abstract

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.
