Depressive-Voice Smartphone App

We have developed an easy-to-use «Depressive-Voice» App that installs on laptops, tablets, or smartphones. Based on normative data from clinical studies, this App allows users to monitor their affective states over time through daily 2-minute voice recordings. A recording involves: (1) invoking the App; (2) adjusting microphone volume; (3) counting from 1 to 30; and (4) reading out loud a standard text. The results of new recordings are compared with all previous results. For details see the [«Depressive-Voice» App Manual].

Auditory Evaluation and Training

Hearing loss is a complex, etiologically diverse medical condition where multiple genetic and environmental factors are involved. Environmental factors include noise exposure, ototoxin exposure, infections, smoking, and comorbidities like hypertension or diabetes. There are distinct between-subject differences regarding onset, pathology, and form of impairment. Critically important for speech intelligibility are frequencies affected by hearing loss in the range between 55 Hz and 7,040 Hz (7 octaves).

Audio Recorder with Spectrum Analyzer

The IFMA recorder is NOT just another wav-File Recorder for high-quality audio recordings at a sampling rate of 48 kHz, a 16-bit resolution, and no loss of information due to compression. Unlike other Apps in the field, the IFMA recorder possesses unique features that allow you (1) to monitor the quality of audio recordings by means of "Time Series Plots"; and (2) to explore the tonal composition of sounds regarding distribution and intensity of higher harmonics ("overtones") by means of "Spectrum Plots" at a quartertone resolution over 7 octaves.

Learn how regular voice recordings can improve your coping behavior under stress, so that you feel much more comfortable, for example, when speaking in public.
