This study provides an methodology for the evaluation of the voice and the speech of deaf people (VANFIBR). This protocole uses a subjective multi parameter method, similar as the one used for the " normal-hearing" voice (GIRBAS). We use a global appreciation factor (A), a factor for the control of the pitch of the voice (F), the intensity (I), the extra-vocal noises (B), the rythm of the speech (R) and the voisement (V). This method wants to be independant of the deafness pathology and the age of the subject. It was tested on a deaf population and a normal hearing one. The analyses by a jury showed the good discrimination between both populations and the pertinence of most of the parameters used.
