The sound of our voice is produced by vibration of the vocal folds, which are two bands of smooth muscles tissues that are positioned opposite each other in the larynx. The larynx is located between the base of the vocal folds, which are two bands of smooth muscle tissue that are positioned opposite each other in the larynx. The larynx is located between the base of the tongue and the top of the trachea, which is the passageway to the lungs.
When we speak, the vocal folds open to allow us breathe, this is however preceded by a series events, the vocal folds snap together while air from the lung blows past, and make them vibrate, the vibration produced travel through the throat nose and mouth which act as resonating cavities to modulate the sound. The quality of the voice comes from its pitch, volume and tone, this in turn depends on the shape and size of the vocal folds, and the resonating cavities.
Though all of us depend on our voice for communication, there are professions many professions like singing, teaching, medicine, law, nursing, sales, and public speaking voice is a premium quality. This puts them at high risk for developing vocal cord problems.
