In this paper we tried to examine the effect of normalization on discriminating the pathological voice into normal and abnormal classes using artificial neural network. Average values per each parameter were used to normalize each set of parameter values. Artificial neural network was used as a classifier. And the effect of normalization was evaluated by comparing the discrimination results between original and normalized parameter sets.
