The term dysphonia refers to having an abnormal voice. Most people think of vocal issues as a temporary problem like laryngitis, but there are numerous long-term voice disorders, often with no known cause, limited or no treatments options, and no cure. This can completely change one's life, affecting everything from relationships to careers and even simple things like talking on the phone or ordering at a drive-thru restaurant.

This may change how your messages are conveyed and even received, causing frustration to both the speaker and the listener.LEARN MORE
