S/Z Ratio is an evaluation utility for speech-language pathologists who provide assessment and/or treatment to clients with voice disorders.
With a built-in stopwatch feature, S/Z Ratio allows for the timing of a clientʼs /s/ and /z/ maximum phonation times. Once maximum phonation times are taken, an s/z ratio is instantly calculated. Calculated ratios are displayed in a color-coded fashion to provide visual feedback for quick interpretation of testing results. A reference information screen is also included to assist clinicians and clients in interpreting the obtained s/z ratio results.
Consider using this application throughout the evaluation and treatment process: (1) during initial evaluations, (2) as a screening tool to identify the need for further assessment, (3) during treatment sessions for visual, instant feedback, and (4) as a re-evaluation measure of progress based on therapeutic interventions.
Whether you specialize in voice therapy or provide treatment to the occasional client with voice disturbances, this application is a must-have. S/Z Ratio provides a wealth of features including:
- Built-in stopwatch
- Instant calculation of ratio
- Color-coded display of ratios
- Reference information screen for assistance in interpreting results
- Single touch Start, Stop and Reset stopwatch buttons
- Large, easy to read display
- Displays /s/ and /z/ maximum phonation time simultaneously for easy review and discussion with clients
Replace your stopwatch and calculator with this app today, and gain some much needed time and pocket space as a result!
What's New in Version 1.1
Universal update - Now runs natively on iPhone & iPad.
Added a global reset button to reset both /s/ and /z/ durations with a single tap.
Will use immediately!
App is fast and intuitive to use, gives instant feedback (+ motivation) via real-time stopwatch. I will switch from cumbersome hand-timing now. And I can quit just writing "moderately breathy voice" in writeups & have a real baseline. A great addition to my daily-use "in the field" SLP eval toolkit.
It is a convenient way of finding vocal pathologies in few seconds...wow...very impressive
