Voice volume clarity of words

Since being diagnosed with Parkinson’s about 5 years ago, my voice volume has got lower and lower. My clarity of words has got so. Bad ,that I know in my mind what I want to say, but it doesn’t come out clearly.

Have done LSV course, but wondering if anybody else might have a suggestion as to what I can do to help myself. Have started singing which seem to help.

Hi @Jbmad,

I’m sorry to hear that you’ve been experiencing issues with your speech. I’m not sure if you’re aware, but we have a speech and communication section on our website that you may find helpful here - https://www.parkinsons.org.uk/information-and-support/speech-and-communication-issues .

We have some useful tips that can help with your speech in addition to the LSV course you did and there’s also some information on a few apps that you may want to explore.

Hopefully you’ll hear from other members soon but in the interim, I hope this helps!

Best wishes,

Thanks for the link, found it very helpful
