This software offers you the chance to test your voice and check for vocal fold health risks. Three important voice parameters are measured: frequency, jitter and shimmer. Values are compared to thresholds given in latest medical publications.
This application is primarily intended for smokers and people whose profession entails long tiring hours of voice use (educators, trainers, lawyers, businessmen, stock brokers, sales executives, communication professionals and vocal performers like radio jockeys, television anchors, broadcast journalists, etc…), because they belong to a high-risk group for developing the vocal fold disease. Ideally, every adult person, male or female should test his/her voice. Application is not intended for children.
THEORY BEHIND APPLICATION:
Human voice is a very complex phenomenon. It is essentially the sound uttered through the mouth of a human. Voice is the result of synergy of many human organs, namely lungs, vocal folds and articulators (tongue, palate, cheek, lips, etc.) within vocal tract. Sound is generated through the rhythmic opening and closing of the vocal folds. These organs are subject to various health risks.
Experts in phoniatrics are able to determine the condition of vocal tract simply by hearing the human voice. They sometimes use sophisticated professional equipment, measure the voice parameters, evaluate the health condition of vocal folds and glottis and decide if medical treatment is required.
The purpose of this program is to increase awareness among users to pay attention to the health of their vocal folds. Test results in this application have only indicative value and may in no case be a substitute for an examination performed by a professional.
Also available on Apple Store (Name: Voice Test)
This speaking app is for persons who have a vocal or speech impairment usually due to a medical condition. By speaking for them, Touch Voice + allows them to communicate with family, friends, doctors, nurses and care givers.
Users of the app can now speak their needs and feelings, reducing stress levels, which can possibly lead to better communications and facilitate care and recovery.
Touch Voice + was designed for communication in a hospital setting, convalescent facility, home care or in just about any common communication scenario or situation. The Touch Voice app transforms a tablet or phone into an Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) device for those who are unable to produce understandable natural speech on their own.
Touch Voice + is most useful for “Dysarthria”, a condition in which someone knows the right words but cannot speak them, or vocalize them intelligible.
Medical conditions in which Touch Voice + may be able to help people better communicate are: Stroke, Laryngitis, ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), traumatic brain injury, Brain tumor, Cerebral palsy, Multiple sclerosis, Ataxia, Laryngeal Cancer and while on a ventilator / respirator or other conditions.
The Touch Voice + user interface is optimized for use by those who have mobility and dexterity challenges (larger tablets are generally recommended for this) specifically affecting their ability of targeting and touching communication buttons with their shaky or weakened fingers.

“I regularly use Mr. Glenn Harrold's tapes with pre-surgical patients. The marked improvements in overall recovery have been astounding. It has been noted by attending surgeons' and anaesthesiologists' that surgical patients having used pre and post- surgical conditioning with Glenn Harrold's positive reinforcement tapes, have faster and more positive results than those patients not having used this technique. Thank you Glenn for your valuable contribution to the healing arts.”
