Forensic Toxicology, Forensic Biology, and Crime Scene Investigation have always had career scope. Forensic Speech Science deal with analysing voice samples using spectrogram, recording, and machines to help identify the speaker. Some voice recordings are permissible as evidence in the court of law in anti-corruption and other criminal offences. The ability to work with experts from other allied fields like Social Science, Psychology, and Statistics is a must, since job profiles largely depend on one’s area of specialisation. Such postgraduates work in both government and private agencies, hospitals and laboratories.
