Speak Your Mood
This project aims to discover if changes in mental health symptoms can be tracked by small changes in the sound of a person’s voice.
History of the project
Our project partners at UNSW Engineering have previously analysed speech recordings from a well-controlled, quiet office environment. They were able to measure changes in the variation of a person’s speech and relate this to changes in depression symptoms. This project will now examine whether the same changes can be detected using recordings from mobile phones.
We will conduct a small pilot study asking participants to record different speech samples into an app. Only those speech clips elicited through the app will be recorded, no background audio will be recorded.
The study is currently in progress.
