Raymond D. Kent, Martin John Ball
Singular Publishing Group, 2000 - Medical - 492 pages
This comprehensive book explores the many facets of measuring voice quality. Voice quality is a concept that is widely recognized and applied, yet very difficult to define in a way that is universally satisfactory. A number of experts consider such topics as perceptual assessment, instrumental (objective) assessment, and various voice states and disorders. Contributors with a wide scope of experience present perspectives and ideas on how voice quality can be assessed with improved validity and reliability.
