Voice research has expanded significantly, resulting in new knowledge about vocal function. This expansion is evident in the increasing number of meetings and conferences dedicated to voice measurement. This review surveys progress in voice analysis. This overview is focused on, although not confined to, papers published between December 1997 and November 1998. The first four sections correspond to the major divisions of voice measurement: acoustic, aerodynamic, physiologic, and visual studies. The fifth section discusses studies that employ a variety of these techniques. We review the progress that has been made in understanding of the speaking voice and relate this knowledge to clinical practice.
