Grillo, Elizabeth U.; Brosious, Jenna N. – Communication Disorders Quarterly, 2019
The current study investigated physical education (PE) student teachers' understanding of the vocal demands of their future profession, interest in participating in a voice-training program, and the current impact of the voice on quality-of-life by the "Voice Handicap Index" (VHI). Seventy-four PE student teachers completed a…

Meerschman, Iris; Lierde, Kristiane; Ketels, Julie; Coppieters, Charlotte; Claeys, Sofie; D'haeseleer, Evelien – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2019
Background: To date, the immediate effects of a semi-occluded vocal tract (SOVT) configuration have been thoroughly demonstrated. However, it is not yet sufficiently confirmed whether a therapy programme (i.e. longer than one session) using SOVT exercises leads to an enhanced phonation and improved vocal quality. Aims: The aim of this study was to…

Palmer, Andrew D.; Carder, Paula C.; White, Diana L.; Saunders, Gabrielle; Woo, Hyeyoung; Graville, Donna J.; Newsom, Jason T. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2019
Purpose: Social contact is known to be vital for older adults' mental and physical health but, because communication impairments often co-occur with other types of disability, it is difficult to generalize about the relative impact of a communication impairment on the social relationships of older adults. Specific aims of the study were to examine…

Ferrer, Carlos A.; Haderlein, Tino; Maryn, Youri; de Bodt, Marc S.; Nöth, Elmar – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2018
Purpose: The aim of the study was to address the reported inconsistencies in the relationship between objective acoustic measures and perceptual ratings of vocal quality. Method: This tutorial moves away from the more widely examined problems related to obtaining the perceptual ratings and the acoustic measures and centers in less scrutinized…

Stephenson, Kimberly Jean – ProQuest LLC, 2018
Teachers represent a large portion of professional voice users in the United States and the development of poor vocal health has related to their work. Elementary music educators are expected to use their voices in both speech and song and are vocally active for much of their workday. This study investigates elementary music teachers'…

Trollinger, Valerie L.; Sataloff, Robert T. – Music Educators Journal, 2018
While many music teachers are familiar with strategies to prevent damage due to vocal abuse or misuse, they are generally not acquainted with other vocal problems that can affect their own or their students' singing ability. Such damage can also occur when playing a wind instrument. While vocal abuse and misuse are commonly understood in music…

Liu, Boquan; Polce, Evan; Sprott, Julien C.; Jiang, Jack J. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2018
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to introduce a chaos level test to evaluate linear and nonlinear voice type classification method performances under varying signal chaos conditions without subjective impression. Study Design: Voice signals were constructed with differing degrees of noise to model signal chaos. Within each noise power, 100…

Johansson, Kerstin; Seiger, Åke; Forsén, Malin; Holmgren Nilsson, Jeanette; Hartelius, Lena; Schalling, Ellika – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: Respiratory muscle impairment following cervical spinal cord injury (CSCI) may lead to reduced voice function, although the individual variation is large. Voice problems in this population may not always receive attention since individuals with CSCI face other, more acute and life-threatening issues that need/receive attention.…

Meerschman, Iris; Van Lierde, Kristiane; Van Puyvelde, Caro; Bostyn, Astrid; Claeys, Sofie; D'haeseleer, Evelien – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2018
Background: In contrast with most medical and pharmaceutical therapies, the optimal dosage for voice therapy or training is unknown. Aims: The aim of this study was to compare the effect of a short-term intensive voice training (IVT) with a longer-term traditional voice training (TVT) on the vocal quality and vocal capacities of vocally healthy…

Croake, Daniel J.; Andreatta, Richard D.; Stemple, Joseph C. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2018
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to quantify the interactions of the 3 vocalization subsystems of respiration, phonation, and resonance before, during, and after a perturbation to the larynx (temporarily induced unilateral vocal fold paralysis) in 10 vocally healthy participants. Using dynamic systems theory as a guide, we hypothesized that…
