VASTAvox 3.0 is a Google Group. It is an online community which allows both members and non-members to connect and communicate their thoughts and concerns about Voice and Speech. This Group is unmoderated and open to anyone with an interest in voice and speech. VASTA members are encouraged to subscribe.
VASTAvox was first created by Honorary Distinguished Member, Dudley Knight, in the 1990s and hosted on the University of California-Irvine Listserv. When UC-Irvine was cleaning their Listservs out, we moved to a Yahoo Group for VASTAvox 2.0. Upon the demise of Yahoo Groups, it has now moved to a Google Group amongst VASTA's Google Workplace.
The Group offers many benefits for its members to communicate with one another. It allows attachments to messages, digests sort by topic, full HTML formatting of messages, and superior archive search capabilities.
