Pa., August 4, 2006 – Vocal Innovations, LLC today
announced the launch of two new software products: the Voice Evaluation Suite TM and Virtual Voice Trainer
TM. These products were unveiled as part of a pre-release preview in June
at the 36th Annual Voice Foundation Symposium: Care of the Professional Voice in Philadelphia, Pa. These patient-centered and therapist-friendly
acoustic programs offer unique solutions for the assessment and treatment of voice disorders.
“We are committed to developing
easily accessible tools that provide objective acoustic ‘voiceprints’ and corresponding statistics to back-up
the standard aural evaluation of voice disorders. The Voice Evaluation Suite
TM and Virtual Voice Trainer TM are software programs that reinforce the professional judgment of the therapist
and lend credibility to the process in this era of evidence-based practice,” said Kimberly Steinhauer, Vocal Innovations
CEO and Voice Specialist/Scientist.
Steinhauer continued, “We are very
excited about the positive feedback from voice therapists, physicians, coaches and trainers who previewed the software programs
at the Symposium.”
Evaluation Suite TM (VES) automates the collection, analysis, storage and retrieval of standard clinical voice
measures and offers the report in a paperless/electronic format.
“VES is a great new instrument for voice evaluation,"
said Dr. Cari Tellis, Speech-Language Pathologist and faculty of College Misericordia. “It is
easy to use and provides a comprehensive, printable copy of the evaluation without the need to handwrite data.”
The Virtual Voice Trainer TM
(VVT), a program designed for voice rehabilitation and training, provides pre-recorded, exemplary aural models and clear visual
feedback for patients / clients throughout the voice treatment process. The home-study
companion software kit is easy-to-use and offers the clinician the ability to customize home self-study exercises for their
clients or patients. Clinics and independent therapists are also given the opportunity
to “private-label” the home-study CDs and / or online “mini-websites” where the software can be downloaded.
visual biofeedback significantly enhances speed of learning and clients often report that it’s the best part of our
sessions. The customization options and ability to email homework exercises ensure a tailored program for each client outside
the clinic,” said Tom Burke, of Metropolitan Speech Pathology, LLC.
With these releases, Vocal Innovations
provides much needed solutions that allow voice therapists to have access to an acoustic voiceprint and corresponding numbers
to back up their standard aural evaluation of voice disorders.
