Get «Depressive-Voice» App for free

Getting to know yourself better: Positive and negative affects —such as happiness, sadness, safety, fear, peacefulness, aggression— have a significant impact on both body and mind. As speaking behavior and voice sound characteristics are greatly influenced by the speaker's affective state, we have developed the «Depressive-Voice» App that allows users to monitor their affective states over time through daily 2-minute voice recordings on a laptop, tablet, or smartphone [see our scientific article].

Download the «Depressive-Voice» App for free: You can download the MS Windows version for free and use it as long as you like. No hidden fees, no registration, no personal data collected —just use it on your computer, laptop, or tablet! Revised version [vox.readme].
