Speech-language pathologists who work with clients with voice disorders know the difficulty of accurately documenting the quality of an abnormal voice. Although clinicians have instruments to assess various aspects of voice production, the measures that are obtained have limited relationships to perceived voice quality. The problem of assessing auditory perceptual voice quality is one that has troubled clinicians and researchers for a very long time.
Several years ago, Division 3, together with the University of Pittsburgh, sponsored a conference on the topic of auditory perceptual analysis of voice. Attendees included members of the national and international communities who have worked in this area, either researching approaches to measure voice quality or dealing with the everyday problems that clinicians face in attempting to describe voices. This conference was the basis for the development of the Consensus Auditory Perceptual Evaluation of Voice (CAPE-V). The purpose of this article is to provide affiliates with background information which led to the creation of the CAPE-V and describe the tool’s protocol.
