Acoustic Features of Transfeminine Voices and Perceptions of Voice Femininity
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relationships between acoustic measures of transfeminine voices and both self- and listener ratings of voice femininity. Connected speech samples were collected from 12 transfeminine individuals (M  = 36.3 years, SD = 10.6 years) and a control group of five cisgender (cis) women and five cis men (M = 35.3 years, SD = 13.3 years). The acoustic measures of fundamental frequency (fo), fo variation, formant frequencies, and vocal intensity were calculated from these samples. (Source: Journal of Voice)

Increased Interval From Initial Evaluation to Initial Voice Therapy Session is Associated With Missed Voice Therapy Appointments
Voice therapy (VT) is an essential component to a successful treatment of laryngological disorders and thus patient outcomes depend on patient compliance with VT. As volume of VT patients ’ ebb and flow, there is often variation in wait times for initial VT sessions. There is a paucity research evaluating VT latency and missed appointments. It is important to find associations between latency and patient compliance to assist with increasing the quality of patient care in all voice and swallowing clinics and decreasing missed appointments for VT following.

The Effects of Respiratory Muscle Training on Phonatory Measures in Individuals with Parkinson's Disease
In individuals with Parkinson's disease (PD), respiratory muscle weakness and rigidity, bradykinesia of abdominal muscles and stiffness of the chest wall, affect the respiratory component of voice intensity due to reduced pulmonary capacity and airflow needed to vibrate the vocal folds. It may be possible to improve voice production by strengthening respiratory muscles. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of inspiratory and expiratory muscle training on voice production outcomes in individuals with PD. (Source: Journal of Voice)

Granular Cell Tumors of the Larynx: A Clinicopathologic Study of Five Patients
Granular cell tumors (GCT) are uncommon neoplasms that may involve the larynx. Patients affected with a laryngeal GCT usually complain of dysphonia. When they involve the larynx, these tumors have predilection for the posterior half of the vocal cords. Between 2006 and 2018, we have experienced five cases of GCT involving the right true vocal cord. They were diagnosed and successfully treated with microsurgical resection. Here we present this 5-case series and a retrospective review of literature. (Source: Journal of Voice)

Formant Frequencies, Cephalometric Measures, and Pharyngeal Airway Width in Adults With Congenital, Isolated, and Untreated Growth Hormone Deficiency
Adult subjects with isolated growth hormone deficiency (IGHD) due to a mutation in the growth hormone releasing hormone receptor gene exhibit higher values formant frequencies. In normal subjects, a significant negative association between the formant frequencies and the reduction of linear craniofacial measurements, especially of maxilla and mandible, has been reported. This suggests smaller pharyngeal width, despite low prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome. Here we evaluate their pharyngeal airway width, its correlation with vowel formant frequencies, and the correlation between them and the craniofacial measur...

Classifying and Identifying Motor Learning Behaviors in Voice-Therapy Clinician-Client Interactions: A Proposed Motor Learning Classification Framework
We studied whether concepts in motor skill learning could be operationalized to identify clinical interactions and behaviors in a voice therapy setting. Our aim was to test the feasibility of measuring these behaviors in the prepractice phase so that we could eventually evaluate and apply principles of motor learning and skill acquisition to Speech-Language Pathology. Four general categories of behaviors that have been identified in the client-clinician prepractice phase were identified: motivation, modeling, verbal information, and feedback.

The Influence of Linguistic Demand on Symptom Expression in Adductor Spasmodic Dysphonia
Adductor Spasmodic Dysphonia (ADSD), a form of focal dystonia, has been defined as a neurogenic, task-specific disorder characterized by abrupt spasms of intrinsic laryngeal muscles that result in phonatory breaks. Voice breaks are typically isolated to propositional speech, and reported to increase in severity as speaking demand or complexity increases. Research to date has focused on variations in phonologic contexts and their influence on voice breaks. The influences of variables at lexical and syntactic levels of analysis have been less well-researched and yet may provide insight into observed variability of symptom ma...

Effect of Dysphonia and Cognitive-Perceptual Listener Strategies on Speech Intelligibility
There is a high prevalence of dysphonia among professional voice users and the impact of the disordered voice on the speaker is well documented. However, there is minimal research on the impact of the disordered voice on the listener. Considering that professional voice users include teachers and air-traffic controllers, among others, it is imperative to determine the impact of a disordered voice on the listener. To address this, the objectives of the current study included: (1) determine whether there are differences in speech intelligibility between individuals with healthy voices and those with dysphonia; (2) understand...
