horrible voice (12)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2008-01-28 06:53 ID:kCHd19pz

I have an horrible voice. I tried recording my voice and listening to my voice then figuring out the problem.. but, I'm horrible at evaluating my own problem.

I have a slight nasally voice with an asian accent mixed in. I have no problem trying to speak clearly.. it's just the words that I do say does not sound GOOD.

Is there anyway I can improve on the sound of my voice?

Read books loudly, putting emphasis and tone. Record yourself. Improve.

Maybe try to act in a play.

You always feel uncomfortable by hearing your own voice, because you are not used to it.
I bet there is no real problem with it.

Improve the sound of your voice my taking steroids, or just deciding not to care.

your own voice sounds different to you, your own voice recorded, most of the time, will sound somewhat different than your real voice does.

i work at a radio station and i hear my voice recorded almost everyday, i still haven't gotten used to it. also, most people i know don't like their own voices.

trust other people on this. ask them if your voice sucks, if they say it does, there's probably not much you can do without a lot of fucking work.

I don't like the sound of my voice. But nobody has ever said anything about it and I can't imagine anybody ever would. One thing I noticed was not so much my accent, but I would get lazy and slurr some words and basically sound stupid. If you make a conscious effort you can correct yourself and after a while it becomes habit.

My voice is probably worse than yours. I'm australian, but people always ask me where my accent is from, and if i ask them to guess, they say either american, canadian, or english. Once someone even said jamaican. My name means 'she sings' in french, but you wouldn't want to hear me do it, it's tragic. And if i talk on the phone, I have to change my voice, or else i'm invariable asked if my mummy or daddy is home. L.O.L.

record your voice and put it up here so we can listen to it.

I'm American and I always get asked where my accent is from. Heck, I participated in a "anonymous" 4-ch chat session a long while ago and even Squeeks (an Australian) said I didn't sound American. :(

I've gotten Europe a few times, Nigeria once, and Asia once while talking online. ("You sound like a fob!")

I've also done some 4-ch recordings, so some of you might know my voice...

I have a high-pitched girly voice. This is problematic because I do tech support for a living, so I'm on the phone all the time and no one ever sees my face. Even though I have a masculine name, people still call me "ma'am". Or if I'm at home and get a call from a telemarketer, they hear me and say "Is your mommy or daddy there?" So despite being a 22-year-old male, everyone who talks to me thinks I'm either 8 years old, or a girl.

The worst part though, was when I was talking to this good ol' boy from West Virginia. He had been calling me "ma'am" the whole conversation, and at the end he says "Thanks, hun" in this really flirty tone. I felt like I needed a long shower. But I took solace in the knowledge that if he knew the truth, he'd probably be even more grossed out than I was.

so... seems the moral of this thread is that there are always people worse off than you. :P
