Does my voice sound like that?

Do you know what your voice sounds like?……

Of course, you do.

You have been listening to your voice since you were a small child. Every time you open up your mouth, you hear your voice. You know what your voice sounds like; if you are unsure how your voice sounds, you can start talking.

For example my voice

Take my voice, for example; my voice sounds more in the lower deep tonal voice range. My voice is not a deep bass voice, but it is a deep tonal voice. I hear my voice each time I talk. It is a voice I am familiar with.

I can also hear my voice on recording devices; for example, doing a Podcast, I can listen to my voice. And I hear my voice sound like……… ah……….ok…….. My voice sounds like that……My voice sounds nothing like I am used to.


Welcome to the surprise of recording your voice on a recording device like a podcast. My voice sounds more like a higher tonal voice. I find it difficult to explain. I thought my voice might sound similar to a voice from a past Minnesota senator, Al Franken, but I don’t think that comparison is accurate. For those interested, I have a podcast called Live Your Life Learning for those who may be interested in hearing my voice.

Perfectly sounding voice; it works fine for me to navigate through life, but it is surprising when you first hear your voice on a recording device. After a while, you get used to your voice on a recording device after doing it for some time.
