Dysarthria is a condition developing after stroke or another brain injury, when the muscles of the mouth, face, and respiratory system may become weak and slowly moving, or even not move at all. Result is loss of ability of speaking in less or greater degree. The type and severity of dysarthria is determined by the area of the nervous system disabled by stroke. Other symptoms are "slurred" speech, speaking softly or barely whispering, slow speaking, mumbling in speech, limited tongue, lip, and jaw movement, vocal quality changes, and chewing and swallowing difficulty.
