The process of gathering data from excised larynges, tissue samples, mechanical models, and human subjects is shown. These data are integrated by computer to simulate the physics of air and tissue motion in the larynx and the vocal tract. Voice simulation offers many pedagogical and clinical opportunities in addition to the obvious research applications.
