CVSA and other Voice Stress Analysis Applications CVSA and other Voice Stress Analysis Applications
Computer Voice Stress Analysis--another pseudoscientific form of "lie detection"--is used by some law enforcement agencies as an alternative to the polygraph.

Sting the CVSA?
Does anyone have any information reguarding the CVSA and countermeasures to use against it?  Has anyone read "How to Sting the CVSA?"  Any information about the CVSA would be greatly appreciated.

CVSA question format
When given a CVSA test, do the "testers" use the same format as they do on a polygraph?  Do they use control questions such as on the CQT?  Does anyone has first hand knowledge?
