Ensuring teacher voice welfare with Hear and Learn’s amplification systems

In the demanding world of teaching, vocal strain and voice welfare are significant concerns. Hear and Learn is at the forefront of providing effective soundfield solutions to mitigate these issues with our state-of-the-art teacher voice amplification and teacher voice loss systems.

A recent communication from a primary school teacher highlighted the critical need for such systems. Diagnosed with dysphonia in October 2022, this teacher experienced firsthand the benefits of using the Redcat point-to-pair amplification system. However, transitioning to a new school posed a challenge due to the absence of a personal amplification system, underscoring the necessity for portable, efficient solutions in varied teaching environments.

Hear and Learn responds to this need with the Redcat device, designed with optimal portability and equipped with a battery that sustains all-day performance. This innovation ensures that teachers can maintain vocal health without compromising on their teaching effectiveness, irrespective of the classroom setup.

The significance of teacher voice welfare is further supported by extensive research, including a 2010 study from Brazil. This research underscores the extensive costs governments incur from employing temporary staff to substitute for teachers suffering from voice-related issues like Dysphonia. The study advocates for prevention as the most cost-effective strategy to minimise phonotrauma, thus reducing the financial burden on educational institutions.

Moreover, another Brazilian report highlights the effectiveness of soundfield systems in alleviating symptoms such as dry throat, vocal fatigue, and effort, while simultaneously enhancing voice quality by reducing roughness and breathiness.

At Hear and Learn, we are committed to advancing teacher voice welfare through our advanced teacher voice amplifier and teacher voice loss systems. By integrating our technologies into your educational setting, you can safeguard the vocal health of your educators while ensuring optimal learning outcomes for students.
