The treatment in this research was the combination of frame length: 25 ms, 40 ms and 60 ms, frame overlap of 0%, 40%, and 60%, and the number of codewords (number of clusters) of 1 to 29. The best accuracy in recognizing five types of crying Infants using mahalanobis distance can be achieved up to 83% when the frame length = 275, the overlap frame = 0.25, and the k = 17.
