Likability (DFG)

Likability of voices

  • The aim of this project is to find common perceptual dimensions of people’s voices and speaking style. How are these impressions from unknown speakers evaluated; what makes us like or dislike certain voices? Finally, the impact of voices’ likability on communication behaviour is studied for spoken dialogue systems.


Expected Outcome

  • A set of perceptual dimension for voice and speaking style
  • Acoustic parameters related to these dimensions
  • A model to predict perceptual dimensions from acoustic information
  • A model to predict likability of unknown voices
  • Results on the impact of voices’ likability on communication behaviour
