Currently, there are a number of useful computer-based programs available to assist speech-language pathologists in clinical intervention. As clinicians acquire computer-based systems, they must realize that responsible use of these systems is dependent on an understanding of the usefulness and limitations of this type of instrumentation. The purpose of this report is to provide a basic overview of (a) speech signal acquisition, (b) computer processing, and (c) some basic applications related to computer-based manipulation of speech. Although it may not be necessary for the clinician to configure and/or program these systems, a general understanding of the capacities and limitations of this instrumentation will provide a foundation for responsible and creative applications.
