    Do you love your own voice?

    Does your voice sound the same all the time or does it change?

    What do most people think of you voice?

    If you can record the audio version of a book, what would you like to pick?

    I like my voice, sometimes I hate hearing myself talk though.


    For a book recording I would choose the book I'm writing.

    I sound a lot different to myself than I do to others. And I sound different on camera as opposed to in person. But to answer your question, no, not especially. On a personal scale of 1 to 10 I'd give myself a 6.

    people say I have a comforting voice, I don't get it. We hear ourselves differently than others do though..

    I hate my voice, and will hold my ears if it's being played back.

    On the other hand, others tell me I have a wonderful professional voice. It's normal for strangers, upon overhearing me, to ask if I do radio or TV, to which I honestly answer yes. They wonder if I'm some celebrity broadcaster, but of course I'm not.

    I like it enough.

    It changes depending on who I am talking to and how drunk I am (can be very 'Mancunian loud' after a few vodkas icon_biggrin.gif)

    Whether people like my voice depends on who's listening. I got some good feedback on this site about it though.

    No idea what book I'd pick, there are far too many talented voice actors out there for me to consider such a thing icon_smile.gif

    My voice is awesome. I should totally be a star, not joking.

    As for books, I could see myself doing a good rendition of the Hunger Games

    I wish my voice had more character - such as an Aussie or English accent. Would be incredibly hot. Otherwise, I dig my voice - deep and masculine.

    I'd just like to add that I've been told recently I have a stoner voice. Wtf is that supposed to mean?

    I like my voice: it's deep, melodic, and with great diction. I've been told I have one of those voices that can talk you out of your panties, so I guess others like it too. icon_neutral.gif

    I'm okay with mine...I have a raspy/hoarse voice. It's a little above middle pitched...one of my friends told me I could be a rapper with it icon_lol.gif

    I think it can be very confronting, we hear the resonance in our head differently to the way it comes out of our mouths. I'm suppose to listen back to eveyr singing lesson I have, but I find it so hard!!! I think I sound really high-pitched even though I'm a bass-baritone :

    I like my voice and am often told I should get into voice talent work.

    Not sure how to go about doing that though.

    I think everyone has very different voices for different interactions.

    I most definitely have a "I am doing a presentation at work" voice, notably slower, probably modulated down a little bit, and much more.... specific. (if that makes sense).

    You have that whole "Work voicemail" voice that everyone has, but then your personal voicemail is often different. The number of times I've had friends call me at work, and get my voicemail go "Wow, i didnt think that was you!!!"

    I'd like to think I have a good voice... A couple of years ago, I was fairly competitive in one of my hobbies and regularly was asked to be guests on a number of popular podcasts in that genre. I had several people email me stating that they liked my 'radio voice' and I should do more.

    I also sang in College and semiprofessionally after college... so I guess that means I like my voice ;)

    My voice is wonderfully lyrical in the bass register. For the hour after I awake.
