Study Summary

This trial is testing whether adding educational online modules to voice therapy can help improve outcomes by increasing patient engagement and understanding.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for English-speaking adults over 18 with hoarseness (dysphonia) who are recommended voice therapy. They must have internet access and be willing to complete all assessments. It's not for those with certain neurological conditions, moderate-to-profound hearing loss, visual impairments that prevent online module completion, or previous voice quality rating training.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?

The goal is to see if this approach helps patients better understand their treatment plan and potentially leads to better attendance and outcomes in therapy.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since the interventions involve educational modules rather than medical treatments, there are no direct physical side effects expected from participating in this trial.
