Crossing Cultural Boundaries: Adapting CAPE-V for Hindi Speakers
Updated: Jul 5
We are excited to announce our latest contribution to the global voice research community. In a heartfelt endeavor to give back to the place where it all began, we have successfully adapted the Consensus Auditory-Perceptual Evaluation of Voice (CAPE-V) into Hindi. This initiative seeks to assist Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) evaluating Hindi-speaking individuals, further extending the reach of this significant voice assessment tool.
Our project, titled "Cultural & Linguistic Adaptation of the Consensus Auditory-Perceptual Evaluation of Voice (CAPE-V) Into Hindi," was a collaborative effort involving Dr. Ashwini Joshi, Isha Baheti, and Dr. Vrushali Angadi. The work aims to bridge a critical linguistic gap in voice assessments, underscoring our commitment to fostering inclusivity in healthcare.
We extend our deepest gratitude to our collaborators, including a University of Houston alum, the University of Kentucky, the Special Interest Group for Voice and Upper Airway Disorders of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (SIG 3 Perspectives), and, of course, our diligent team at Joshi Voice Lab. Your contributions have made this project possible and we're looking forward to continuing this journey together. #voiceassessment #SIG3 #uhcomd
