Project description

The first purpose is to investigate the relation between acoustic intonation parameters and gender perception. Secondly, short- and longer-term effects of intonation training on vocal characteristics, listener perceptions and PROMS in trans women will be investigated using a randomized sham-controlled trial. This research will lead to new insights in speech feminization and will have a major impact on evidence-based practice.
