Description The present study continues the preceding phases of research. Its goal is to investigate changes of the quality of voice by means of the standard DSI (Dysphonia Severity Index) method. The paper summarizes the experience of applying a preventive voice program in the group of 43 nursery school (women) teachers. After theoretical preparation directed towards voice problems (especially voice hygiene and prevention of voice disorders), the teachers took part in practical voice training. They did phonation and resonance exercises, staccato exercises, combined relaxation exercises, exercises for improving articulation and exercises for improving the strength and setting of the voice according to the manual (which is worked out as a guide to individual training). The changes of voice quality were evaluated by means of the DSI measurements and analysis of the tested persons’subjective self-assessments, audio-visual recordings and the respondents’ personal communications given in the course of recording.
