The (Gender Dysphoria) Voice Therapy Tool

During 2020 RISE, Umeå University and Region Västerbotten are collaborating in a project with the aim to develop a new digital tool for gender confirmative voice therapy.
The goal is to create a working prototype which can be tested with the target group: ie. Speech therapists and people in need of gender affirmative speech therapy.

 The aim is to create a digital tool that can:

  • Act as a support between speech therapist and patient
  • Help patient with training between sessions
  • Support people who want to practice their voice (for gender affirmation) by themselves
  • Work as a support for patients after ended treatment to maintain and continiously improve their voice

The project is funded partly by Vinnova.
