Novel delivery method of transgender voice therapy using a mobile application

Last updated date


Transgender patients’ voices are closely related to their gender identity. Social isolation and emotional distress can result when patients’ voices are inconsistent with their self-identified gender. Transgender patients’ voices can be rehabilitated to improve congruence with their gender identity through behavioral interventions such as voice therapy. However, access to voice therapy is a significant struggle due to insurance, financial, social and cultural concerns. The development of easily accessible alternatives for behavioral voice modification in transgender patients is crucial to improving their voice-related quality of life. This study addresses this deficit in access to these health services through the development of a mobile application to deliver transgender voice therapy.
