Is anyone else having problems being understood when talking on the telephone :thinking:

Hi Andy…
My Husbands voice is very quiet these days and he slurs his words most of the time…I have to ask him several times to repeat what he has said… When I ring him he always sounds like he has a sore throat/ voice quite husky and quietly spoken…
I have been asked by a friend if he has started drinking a lot…as she says he sounds drunk!! :joy:

I have just completed the Lee Silverman Voice Treatment one month course with my local speech pathologist.

It is a bit like PD Warrior or Rock Steady Boxing for the voice.

Since completing the course, a number of acquaintances have commented that my voice is nearly back to normal.

Exercise does work.
