I am trying to help a friend with a serious voice problem. She would be in her mid sixties.
Can you make contact with your organisation a lot easier? Tweets and blogs are not much in the realm of older people. A web page with just pictures and random information is not much immediate help. I would like to talk to someone in the ADN – could you help with this.
it would be much appreciated. In the meantime, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Camille – we are a relatively new and small charity … growing in response to need. We have a support discussion group – hosted through facebook (Dysphonia- Lets talk about it) and many people use that as a place to connect physically with those in their geographic location.
If that doesn’t suit, then you or your friend are very welcome to email us at email@example.com with specific needs or questions. I hope that helps.
?How to leave a message for iPhone callers advising text instead of voice when Dysphonia flares?
Hi Lori – perhaps you could ask someone to record a brief message saying something like. “If I don’t answer your call, please send me a brief text message and I will be sure to reply”
Similarly you could use a ‘text to talk’ app to record the message for you.
You can reveal as much or as little as you like about your voice.
