What People are Saying…
Hi, Mary! I meant to send you a thank-you for the wonderful articles you write about Parkinson’s disease. I think you must be an awesome person as well as an awesome speech therapist! Thank you so much for sharing your literary expertise with my readers of the Parkinson Foundation of Harris County (Houston) monthly Bulletin.
Hi Mary. Thank you for your response and advice. I received the amplifier, and it is so great and wonderful to be able to hear me again. Thank you again for your help!
July 2013I love your product. It has saved my voice. I can feel the strain on my voice from projecting to the audience today. Your voice amplifier has helped me tremendously.
Just know your music CD is the highlight of my uncle’s week. He loves it and it truly is making a difference in his voice volume, articulation and facial expression. Those tunes really stick in ones head.
I use the Hi-Volt bracelet and CD daily. The Hi-Volt keeps me honest. It’s got to flash in order for me to count the exercise as done. If I have trouble getting it to light, the CD is broken down into 8 tracks so I can go back to the beginning of the track and start over. My favorite track is #7 Tongue Twisters. When I finish with the Hi-volt I do some (or all) of Songbirds. I’ve had PD for 29 years, have been through 3 one-on-one speech classes, and this CD & Hi-Volt combination is the best thing I’ve found yet for maintaining and building on the gains in speech quality.
I could definitely feel that my voice was not nearly as “tired” at the end of an all day seminar. I could speak to a group all day without constantly worrying where I was looking when I was speaking; it made it easier to walk around in the room or point to my slide presentation and everyone could still hear me. Superior to lapel mc or fixed mic since the voice amplifier “follows you” or “moves with you” – you aren’t controlled by it.
Mary, November 7, 2011 Thank you! I have been meaning to check in with you and well…time just gets by so quickly! I am nothing but pleased!!! I will continue to pass the information on to other contract instructors….and apparently students are interested too! Voice is back to normal and I am doing what I can to make sure to keep it that way too!
Sept 15, 2012 I wore my amp both days at the meetings, and I was relieved not to have to worry about projecting my voice. Because it took less effort to speak, I spoke more frequently. What a nice benefit.
I’m excited about the possibility of improving (and maintaining) my voice by using the DVD three times per week without even leaving home.
I really like the Songbird CD and use one or more tracks with my daily practice. My favorite is Speech Sound in Waltz Time. I have been known to sing this without the CD! Thank you for creating such a fun way to practice.
