If your work involves speaking in front of people, there will be times when you suffer from vocal strain. This common condition happens frequently amongst teachers, instructors and other professionals who regularly project their voices.

The good news is that there’s a solution: The VoiceAmp VA300. The lightweight, wearable speech device has been designed to deliver amplified speech for people in situations where they must use their voice repetitively.



Over the past 15 years VoiceAmp has helped stutterers, or stammerers – people suffering from what is known as dysfluency – with the application of specialised speech technologies. And for those with dysfluency, know only too well how their lives are affected by anxiety and stress associated with stuttering.

Now there is an easy-to-use, wearable device that can make a significant difference: the VoiceAmp VA600i1. This revolutionary solution is not only a small wearable device (similar in size to a mobile phone); it can be adjusted for individual user needs.



There are many stories of how stuttering, or stammering – otherwise known as dysfluency – has affected the lives of those who experience this speech disorder. One of these stories is told in the film The King’s Speech, the story of British King George VI.


A common theme for stutterers is hitting the ‘wall’, and the panic associated with this fear. The ‘wall’ is the word that the stutterer battles to pronounce. Webster’s College Dictionary, in one of its senses, defines stutter as “to speak with the rhythm interrupted by repetitions, blocks or spasms, or prolongations of sounds or syllables”.
