We design and construct a recording arrangement for speech during an MRI scan of the speakers vocal tract. We concentrate on the acoustic environment around the test subject inside the MRI machine. The data thus obtained is used for construction and validation of a numerical model of the vocal tract.

Index Terms. Speech recording, MRI, acoustic wave guides
