Lyndon I am sure there is some impact if it reflects in the person's voice. This test is different from traditional lie detectors because it does not measure the bodily responses as a lie detector does only the voice reactions.

I agree that there needs to be careful usage of this type of technology. I wanted to draw attention to it because it is readily available and could be used in any number of instances, since there is are really no laws regarding its usage. Misuse or usage incorrectly could provide erroneous results that could negatively impact lives. It's something to consider when technology advances before our legal system does.
I wonder how this impacts or integrates with current "lie detection" technology and practice. I think admissability in juridical proceedings varies singificantly from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, state to state, etc. because reliability is an issue.
Individual stress can affect "lie detector" results. I wonder how well this software accounts for that.

@Lyndon, there is nothing quite like the feeling that comes upon you when you realize that those flashing blue lights are meant for... you. It doesn't even matter if you know full well just what it is that you've done to catch the cop's attention. Likewise, there's nothing quite like the feeling of watching those flashing blue lights pass you by and get the car ahead of you instead. ;-)

But @Maryam, would the software be able to pick up on the lie of a perennial liar? Or would they have the ability to beat the software much as like people can train their bodies to beat a polygraph?

The software is able to detect certain tightening in the vocal muscles that indicate stress.
... Like the vocal muscle tightening 99.99999% of us would experience whenever we're stopped and questioned by law enforcement personnel?
