Routine acoustic voice analysis: time to think again?

Summary: The validity of acoustic assessments in clinical applications remains unproven. Measurement reliability is still limited and might be greatly improved with relatively simple changes and consensus in measurement protocols and techniques. For instance, clinical assessment procedures and current normative values would have to be revised considering gender and vowel. Thus, future research might establish the validity and potential of clinical acoustic assessments.
