Vocal capability battery (VCB)*

A variable set of vocal tasks that the clinician elicits from the patient in order to understand the individual’s vocal capabilities and vocal limitations. During the VCB, the clinician might assess average/anchor pitch, maximum range, ability to add loudness, sustained phonation (for stability), swelling tests of mucosal injury, maximum phonation time, and response to brief trial therapy.
