Earlier this year I had an opportunity to present workshops on effective use of the feedback from VoceVista with our affordable EGG to three groups of users in different parts of the world: Santiago, Chile; Trossingen, Germany; and Mexico City.
The electroglottograph sends a minute high-frequency electric current between the two electrodes. The variations in resistance as the glottis opens and closes (resistance is less when there is no gap between the vocal folds) are the basis for the EGG
