||In advanced societies, one third of the workers are employed in occupations where the voice is the primary means of communication. Dysphonia among teachers is a real pathology clearly documented in otolaryngology and phoniatrics, but in the context of individual care and prevention strategies. These disorders have not received much attention in occupational health in France. They do however represent a source of concern, as evidenced by the request by the social partners for this evaluation to be carried out. The study summarizes key features of occupational voice disorders, analyses results of epidemiological studies, identifies risk factors and occupations at risk and outlines an approach to prevention.
