Pertinence d'une adaptation du « Transsexual Voice Questionnaire Male-to-Female » aux personnes transmasculines

Abstract : This study investigated the relevance of transposing to the male gender the Transsexual Voice QuestionnaireMtF for transmasculine people, that is to say people who are transitioning to the male gender. Our project was motivated by the absence of a specific questionnaire to collect the vocal discomforts experienced by transmasculine people who consult in speech therapy as part as their voice masculinization. Furthermore, there is a common belief that transmasculine people experience few vocal difficulties during their transition. In order to do this, we first assessed the clarity of the items with samples taken from all comers. We then tested the relevance of the items and the exhaustiveness of the discomforts covered in the questionnaire using a sample of transmasculine people. The results revealed a lack of understanding regarding 4 items of the questionnaire, as well as a lack of relevance of 6 items, which prevent them to be presented to transmasculine people as is. In addition, some vocal problems encountered by this population are not addressed by the questionnaire, making it incomplete. Adapting the questionnaire by making it specific to the vocal problems of transmasculine people is therefore necessary in order to allow speech therapy support to be more reflective of the needs of this population.
