Editor's Review
This video is very informative for anyone who is a heavy voice user, be it an actor, singer, or teacher. While little to no diagrams or graphics are provided other than the narrator demonstrating swelling checks, it is still very engaging, with helpful tips on how to maintain vocal health and when to see a physician or SLP. Accessible to a variety of audiences.
