Vocal Health #8: Gender Affects
Speech Development & Health
Duration: 2:40
We all know that men drop to Earth from Mars, and that women float down gently from Venus. But did you also know that those planets hand out different sets of vocal anatomy? We're talking about more than variety in pitch.
In this informative podcast, international voice talent and coach Bettye Zoller shares tidbits about how those anatomical differences affect our voices. For instance:
  • females seem to recover faster from speech disorders, and
  • speech development continues longer in females than in males.
(Sorry guys.) This is number 8 in Zoller's podcast series on Vocal Health, available only at VoiceOverXtra. You'll also want to review these earlier podcasts:
