Mumbling may be getting in the way of you speaking effectively. Luckily, speech therapy can help you correct your volume and tone.
What is mumbling?
Mumbling refers to speech that is too quiet or indistinct to understand. This can occur due to a number of speaking issues, including but not limited to:
- Shallow breathing that doesn't allow for voice projection
- Sound is produced in the back of the throat
- Poor or lazy articulation
Why fix it?
Mumbling can also cause other speaking issues, such as:
- Voice breaks
- Vocal fatigue
- Poor vocal projection
- Throat sensations
Can speech therapy help?
By working with a Speech Language Pathologist, you can help you better project your voice. Some exercises that an SLP will teach you to do are the following:
- Changing tongue and mouth muscle placement
- Practice pronunciation and clarity in speech
- Work on articulators
- Conversational and social cues in speaking
Speech therapy for mumbling aims to exercise the correct mouth muscles so that your speech is more distinct. This way, people can better understand and hear what you're saying.
