3. The electrolarynx is an amazing device that has allowed individuals with these problems to speak again.
In order to produce speech, the end of the electrolarynx is placed against the neck and a small button is pushed. The device causes a vibration at the vocal folds, which simulates a natural process. The speaker then articulates a word using the tongue, palate, throat and lips as usual.
