    VoiceScreen app

    Voice disorders (hoarseness) are rather common among the general population. The causes of hoarseness can be related to common respiratory diseases and/or to vocal fatigue caused by vocal overload, however it can also be related to functional, behavioral, neurologic factors and both benign and malignant laryngeal tumors. Hoarseness can also be an early symptom of laryngeal cancer.

    VoiceScreen app performs an automatic analysis of the voice signal using the recordings of a sustained vowel [a:] sound and speech. Based on the analysis of the voice, the application combines six different voice function parameters and presents Acoustic Voice Quality Index (AVQI). This index measures possible voice changes and differentiates normal and pathological voices.

    The VoiceScreen app can be freely downloaded from the App Store. Currently, this app is available in 13 languages and is suitable for iOS-based devices – iPhones, tablets etc.

    IFOS World Congress 2023 in Dubai, January

    At the end of Dec. 2021 the Canadian ORL society announced that they would not organize the IFOS Congress in Vancouver in June 2022. There were several serious reasons for this decision and IFOS had to accept it.

    After discussing the problem with the IFOS Executive Committee members the IFOS Board has decided to move the IFOS Congress to Dubai on January 16-21, 2023.

    The UAE ORL Society and GCC countries accepted our proposal. Immediately the Scientific Committee started the congress program preparation. One year is a really short time to prepare the Congress so we have to work really hard to complete an attractive scientific program which is crucial for the Congress success.
