Voice Problems – Overview
What are voice problems?
Voice problems usually include pain or discomfort when you speak or difficulty controlling the pitch, loudness, or quality of your voice.
As you exhale, air gently passes through your throat, across your open vocal cords, and out your mouth and nose. When you speak, your vocal cords close partially as air travels through them, causing vibrations and the unique sound of your voice. Your voice is the result of remarkable and complex interactions involving several body parts-especially the lungs, voice box (larynx ), and mouth. Damage to any of these body parts can lead to a voice problem.

Leading auctions, sometimes for hours on end, has taught Korrey one important thing.
“We’re not a machine,” said Korrey. “If it’s equipment breaks … a starter down … you put a new one in.
