Vocal capabilities*

The full extent of the voice’s abilities in terms of loudness, range, steadiness and control, rapid repetitive sound-making, high soft singing, and so forth. Understanding of any voice’s capabilities (and limitations) requires much elicitation by the examiner. Also required is an understanding of expected capabilities for sex and age, so that an individual’s capabilities can be compared with what is expected.
