    Abstract

    This paper presents a study of children's responses to the perceived gender and age of a humanoid robot Nao which communicated with four genuine synthesized child voices. Results indicate that manipulations are successful for all voice conditions. Also, voices of UK English are preferred by children in Ireland for Child-Robot Interaction (cHRI).
