AbstractTeachers are vulnerable to developing voice problems due to their specific occupational demands during teaching. Information on how the teaching profession is impacted by voice problems and what the profession perceives to be useful information for preventing voice problems is important for health care service providers. A total of 122 subjects from the teaching profession (55 practicing teachers and 67 prospective teachers) were therefore surveyed to ascertain their perception of their voice condition and the impact of voice problems on their communication, social life, personal emotions, and occupation. The results showed that the practicing teachers perceived their voice to be significantly worse than the prospective teachers. In addition, the teachers also faced significantly more difficulties in their daily communication than the prospective teachers. These two groups of subjects believed that information on breathing exercises and specific vocal hygiene strategies would help them prevent voice problems.
