Speech and Voice Research Laboratory

The Speech and Voice Research Laboratory studies speech and singing from the points of view of cultural variation, background factors and prevention of voice problems, and voice training methods. The laboratory holds an extensive recording archive including thousands of speech and singing samples, recorded in our own studio. The research carried out in national and international multidisciplinary networks has been very successful in international audits.

In Finland, undertaking studies in speech technique and vocology is only possible at the University of Tampere. Postgraduate studies in the field interest students abroad as well.
