||The global objective of the course is for the student to acquire specialized skills in integrated perceptual and acoustic analysis of human voice, both healthy and pathological, as part of an advanced training as future voice therapists. This is not a course on spectral analysis for old fashioned voice therapists who will, anyway, continue to rely on their ears only. Along the course, students will practically experience that the integrated use of perceptual and acoustic analysis in their professional practice makes a real difference, both by mutually confirming the evaluation, and, when necessary, by solving the uncertainties due to the limitations of classical perceptive evaluation. Upon successful completion of the course, our students should comfortably master perceptive and acoustic analysis equally. In particular, the student will: - Reach an in-depth understanding of human voice, the different qualities of voice timbre associated with voice handicap or pathology, and those related with optimized efficiency strategies for voice users. - Train her perceptive skills in voice evaluation, and master the powerful spectral tools available for acoustic 1 Advances in Voice Analysis and Characterization 2014 - 2015 - Train her perceptive skills in voice evaluation, and master the powerful spectral tools available for acoustic analysis. - Acquire skills to modify and analyze their own voice, self-implementing the different strategies available to the voice therapist.
