Lately, we have received (in our studio/clinic) a fair amount of people with various voice/vocal injuries caused by numerous forms of accidents. Some of them even had been in a coma for a number of months and their relatives were advised that they may never come out of it; and thus will continue their existence in a vegetative state…
It is indeed! No doubt, those people went through a lot!
You, my reader, would exclaim: “Of course…. Why wouldn’t she…?”
The “new voice” has to be constructed and literally engineered and must be placed in a completely different set of muscles (which had not been injured and are still intact).
