Fifth International Workshop on Models and Analysis of Vocal Emissions for Biomedical Applications (MAVEBA 2007)
The inter-rater variability in
perceptual voice evaluation still limits the
widespread clinical use of the best available
rating system. Support of visible speech in
experimental conditions demonstrates a
significant enhancement of the inter-rater
agreement. However it does not influence the
correlation between perceptual and
conventional acoustic parameters. The
addition of visible speech to the clinical setting
is feasible since nowadays affordable
computer programs provide the spectrogram
in quasi real time.
Index Terms. Dysphonia, Perceptual evaluation, Visible Speech, Acoustic analysis.
