    Background and Objective: Parkinson's Disease (PD) is a progressive disease resulting from a reduction in the release of dopamine. This loss of dopamine can have an effect on non- speech movements, as well as various aspects of speech production. Dysarthria is a collective name for a group of...

    Both rate reduction and increased loudness reportedly are associated with an increase in the size of the articulatory-acoustic working space and improved acoustic distinctiveness for speakers with dysarthria. Improved intelligibility also has been reported. Few studies have directly compared...
