- FluencyBank a project of TalkBank, is an NIH/NSF funded interactive, managed by Carnegie-Mellon University and the University of Maryland. The website "explains features and benefits of the archive, provides suggestions for obtaining consent for new projects, illustrates coding and linkage, and introduces the first 'up and running' portion of the teaching section of FluencyBank, the Voices of People who Stutter."
There are "resources for your upcoming classes on fluency disorders, such as videos from adults who stutter, answering questions about the affective and cognitive consequences of stuttering, with accompanying unannotated transcripts (for practice in behavioral coding), and completed but unscored OASES forms." The "voices protocol are being modified so that all newly collected interviews will be suitable for SSI scoring." There are links to: Browsable transcripts; Downloadable transcripts and OASES and Media
