Assistive Technology for Voice Amplification

LifeTec Factsheet Image

Do you, or someone you know have a reduced volume of speech? Have trouble being understood due to a voice volume disorder? There are a variety of options when it comes to voice amplification. Different voice amplifiers vary in the features they offer. It is best to trial a range of options to determine which voice amplification option is the most suitable for you. Voice amplification may assist people with vocal cord injuries, people with low voice volume due to degenerative conditions, or anyone who needs to use a high-volume voice for long periods of time. They can compensate for lower volume and reduce the need for someone to strain their voice to be heard. This may help to reduce vocal fatigue (a tired voice) and promote better vocal hygiene (looking after your voice and keeping it healthy).
