5 things he didn’t know about his voice

We use it all day, yet we only become aware of its existence if for some reason it doesn’t work properly. Dr. Valéria Holpert is an otolaryngologist with a phoneter, a doctor at the Otolaryngology Center.

Why does it sound different when we hear about recording?

Most people don’t like to hear their voices back because it’s about recording quite differently than we’re used to speaking. The reason for this is that during speech, the sound vibrates the eardrum differently than when listening to a device or recording.

It’s not just the boys that mutate

Adolescence is accompanied by a change in tone, among many other things, but this is not only true for boys. Although in a less noticeable way, the voices of the girls also change during this period. This is because both sexes are affected by hormonal changes that make the vocal cords longer and thicker, making the sound deeper.

Over the age of 60, the voice changes

As we age, vocal cords lose their strength, which can cause the tone to fluctuate during speech and the pitch to change. Men usually have a higher voice because their vocal cords usually become stiffer and thinner. Women tend to have lower levels due to hormonal changes during menopause that reduce estrogen and testosterone levels in their bodies.

Men prefer the higher voice, women the deeper one

The higher tone symbolizes youth and health, and the deeper voice of men presupposes a larger stature and a more masculine appearance. However, a deep sound outside the normal range already seems unnatural.

Our vocal cords also need hydration

It is easier to get tired during speech, scratching your throat, and hoarseness if you do not drink enough fluids. The tissues that make up the vocal cords need moisture, just like the tissues that make up any of our other organs. Of course, the audio tapes do not have to be exposed to moisture externally, as they are located in the trachea, if the liquid got here, it would cause suffocation. Like other nutrients, fluid is absorbed through the intestines and reaches other parts of the body, including the vocal cords.

A change in tone may indicate illness

The most striking form of this is when our voice goes away. Usually, the result of a viral infection is laryngitis, which is accompanied by temporary silence and then we gradually regain our voice. If this condition becomes persistent or our voice suddenly goes away during speech and then returns, it may even indicate a vocal cord polyp, which also requires surgical treatment. Morning sore throat, frequent vocal cord problems can also indicate reflux. Prolonged hoarseness can also call attention to a serious problem, even a cancerous lesion, but wheezing, hoarse, slowed speech can also be a symptom of Parkinson’s disease.

If you are dissatisfied with your tone (too deep or high), your voice is veiled, weak, often goes away in the evening, or you experience severe hoarseness, your child is late, or the mutation period is prolonged, and speech and voice therapy sessions can change the disturbing symptoms.
