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.
