Researchers funded by the NIDCD are working with teachers to devise strategies to help them reduce the stress and strain on their voices. In one study, the teachers use a voice ""dosimeter"" that takes into account the frequency and loudness of their speech along with the duration of vibration in their vocal folds to determine their daily ""dose"" of vocal use. The researcher hopes to establish a safe level of voice use, as well as recommended recovery times from prolonged speaking.
