[claim6]
6. The processing device according to claim 1, wherein the processing unit causes the dialog device to perform dialog processing according to the difference.

[claim7]
7. The processing apparatus according to claim 1, wherein the processing unit outputs evaluation data corresponding to the difference in association with an identifier of the dialog apparatus.

[claim8]
8. The communication apparatus according to claim 1, further comprising: an environmental information acquisition unit that acquires environmental information indicating an environment around said dialogue device. And causing the dialogue device to perform a blink operation at a first timing in accordance with the environment information.

[claim9]
9. The processing device according to claim 8, further comprising: a storage control unit configured to cause a storage device to store data in which a timing at which the user blinks and the environment are associated with each other, wherein the blink operation control unit sets the first timing to a timing corresponding to the data stored in the storage device and the environment information.

[claim10]
10. The processing apparatus according to claim 9, wherein the blink operation control unit further causes the dialog apparatus to perform blink operation at a second timing different from the first timing.

[claim11]
11. The processing device according to claim 1, further comprising: an eyelid unit corresponding to an eyelid of an eye; and an eye blink operation control unit configured to control an eye blink operation of the eyelid unit by opening and closing the eyelid unit, wherein the first acquisition unit acquires a timing of the eye blink operation of the eyelid unit.

[claim12]
12. The processing device according to claim 1, further comprising: a display unit; and an blink operation control unit configured to control an blink operation of an object displayed on the display unit, wherein the first acquisition unit acquires a timing of the blink operation of the object.

[claim13]
13. A processing method comprising: acquiring timing of an eye blink operation of a dialog apparatus and timing of an eye blink operation of a user of the dialog apparatus; and performing processing according to a difference between the timing of the eye blink operation and the timing of the eye blink operation of the user.

[claim14]
14. A program for causing a computer to realize a function of acquiring timing of an eye blink operation of a dialog apparatus and timing of an eye blink operation of a user of the dialog apparatus and performing processing according to a difference between the timing of the eye blink operation and the timing of the eye blink operation of the user.

[claim15]
15.
