The term “voice” in the communication disorders literature has recently been extended to include metaphorical meanings associated with social identity and inclusion versus exclusion. This qualitative case study explores the intersection of metaphorical with literal voice by describing how and why a man with nonfluent aphasia and apraxia, working with a clinician, used SentenceShaperTM to record a specific text for a particular purpose. In addition to offering new insights into figurative meanings of voice, the paper contributes to a growing literature on how the intervention process itself supports, or silences, the voices of people with aphasia.
