This paper presents Universidade de Aveiro’s Voice Evaluation Protocol for European Portuguese (EP), and a preliminary inter-rater reliability study. Ten patients with vocal pathology were assessed, by two Speech and Language Therapists (SLTs). Protocol parameters such as overall severity, roughness, breathiness, change of loudness (CAPE-V), grade, breathiness and strain (GRBAS), glottal attack, respiratory support, respiratory-phonotary-articulatory coordination, digital laryngeal manipulation, voice quality after manipulation, muscular tension and diagnosis, presented high reliability and were highly correlated (good inter-rater agreement and high value of correlation). Values for the overall severity and grade were similar to those reported in the literature.
