In this study, electroglottographic spectral tilt (EST) was investigated for characterization of vocal cords vibration. EST was analyzed from the power spectrum of electroglottographic signals by dividing frequency analysis range as full range (0~4 octave), low range (0~2 octave), and high range (2~4 octave). EST of all ranges in female were greater than those in male. In female and male groups, EST of high range was higher than that of low range. This result suggests that EST has at least two components and dividing frequency range in analysis of EST is effective for investigating characteristics of vocal cords vibration.
