The study described in this article shows that OVP is appropriate for both open and closed fittings, and for different fitting rationales. In many cases, in particular open fittings, when asked about how their own voice sounds, patients will often say “okay.” In the past, this may have been a satisfactory answer. This study shows that even when the patient says “okay,” implementing OVP might change that response to “excellent”.
