Logopedics, phoniatrics, vocology, 41(3), 106-116 (2015-05-29)
Automatic voice assessment is often performed using sustained vowels. In contrast, speech analysis of read-out texts can be applied to voice and speech assessment. Automatic speech recognition and prosodic analysis were used to find regression formulae between automatic and perceptual...

The purpose of this study was to determine if pressed, normal, and breathy voice can be distinguished by laryngeal resistance (LR) in vocally untrained females. Twelve adult females, with no vocal expertise or training, produced each of the voice qualities...
Gláucia Laís Salomão et al.
Logopedics, phoniatrics, vocology, 34(2), 73-83 (2009-04-14)

Logopedics, phoniatrics, vocology, 33(1), 3-11 (2008-03-18)
In this study, we provide nasendoscopic observations illustrating phonetic contrasts in Arabic that require supraglottic laryngeal adjustments, and demonstrate how the laryngeal constrictor mechanism contributes to phonetic descriptions of phonation. Arabic has two pharyngeal consonants (voiceless and voiced). We show...
