The results of recent studies have established significant acoustic differences between tracheoesophageal (TE) and conventional esophageal speech. Listener preferences and acoustic differences between TE and excellent esophageal speech were examined in the present investigation. Although, as a group, TE speech was characterized by longer extended phonation, more syllables per breath, and increased intensity, there were no significant differences in listener preference between the groups.
