Does Anyone Else Notice That Their 'patient" Is Losing Voice Quality. My Husband's Voice Is Raspy And So Low That I Can't Hear Him.

Yes, raspy soft vocalizations, which combined with my hearing loss, makes for interesting conversations! Lol

My husband mumbles gibberish! I think he just cant express himself and its difficult for him. No one understands what he is saying so he seldoms talks anymore! People try to listen but look at him questioning... so he gave up! Heartbreaking!

Yes my stepmom's voice is so quiet that I have to turn off any TV or radio that might be on and put my ear right up close to her face. Even after asking her to repeat 2-3 times, it often just sounfs like incoherent mumbling.
This is a recent development. Before, it might take 3 or 4 times asking her but we could usually figure out what she was saying. Very discouraging. I'm sorry you are going through this. It's so awful.

My husband’s speech is often incomprehensible. Has anyone found that speech therapy helps?

Yes. It is part of the disease that many experience. Ultimately it can/will progress to difficulty swallowing etc.
