Improving the Sound of Your Voice

Improving the Sound of Your Voice

Understanding what makes for a healthy voice, how you can protect and improve the sound of your voice, and what treatments are available for some of the more common vocal disorders

Most of us take our voice for granted. Unless there’s a problem, we typically don’t appreciate how complex our voice actually is. The sounds we create are made by the vibrations of our vocal chords as air passes through the larynx, but it can by a tricky business, and sometimes things do go awry. A panel of voice experts joins Diane to talk about what makes for a healthy voice, how to protect and improve the sound of your voice, and treatments available for some of the more common voice disorders.
