Acoustic Characteristics of Vocal Tension/Harshness in the Speech of the Hearing Impaired.
Whitehead, Robert L.; Whitehead, Brenda H.
Journal of Communication Disorders, v18 n5 p351-61 Oct 1985
The investigation calculated signal-to-noise ratio (S/N ratio) and average fundamental vocal frequency (Fo) for 20 hearing impaired young adults and correlated acoustic measures with degree of perceived vocal tension/harshness. Results indicated significant correlations between S/N ratios and degree of perceived vocal tension/harshness, as well as between the average Fo's and perceived tension/harshness. (CL)
