Charting the electroglottograh measures in a large sample of healthy speakers

Supervisor(s): Dr. Lei He; PD Dr. Meike Brockmann-Bauser (UniSpital)


The variabilities in speech and voice production is wide. Within such a wide range of variability, the characteristics of pathology and healthiness are not always clear. Using a large data set containing E.G.G. waveforms collected during sentence and passage reading tasks among self-rated healthy speakers, it is possible to picture the range of healthy variabilities. In addition, data from vocal health questionnaires provided by the speakers will also help understand the variabilities.
