Abstract The clinically based, real-time analysis of speech into physically definable elements, which are of direct perceptual and productive importance, has become more readily possible in recent years as the result of microprocessor developments. The combination of the acoustic signal of speech derived from a microphone together with the accompanying Laryngograph signal provides the basis for a highly reliable set of facilities. The paper describes methods and results for the analysis of voice, frication and timbre for both quantitative analysis and teaching and therapy using interactive visual displays. A brief discussion is given of links to work in stroboscopy, electropalatography and the associated use of additional sensors. Finally reference is made to a complete clinical work station combining these different facilities together with the quantitative analytical procedures of the speech pattern audiometer.
