    TNB, when I click on your link, it says "This video is private. Sorry about that."

    Your voice sounds pleasant and refined. Normal to me and expected.

    Damn, I thought if I posted the link it'd work. Maybe I can change the setting to unlisted.

    I can hear it now. I agree with spiderlashes, your voice is *very* pleasant! The phrase "well-modulated" comes to mind.

    Thank you...

    Is my voice deep, medium, breathy, nasally, denasal, etc?

    I'd say high and not medium or deep.

    Not a lot of inflection or variation. (Mariah Carey is an example of someone w a lot of variation in her tone.)

    I'd say it's in the medium range. Not nasal.

    like tomato sauce coming out of a can....smooth.


    You sound like you would be on a nighttime radio station with smooth music.

    You also sound like a computer voice at certain parts, were you reading something or thinking about to what to say?

    you were very clear.

    You sound mellow, educated like maybe you could go into broadcasting.
  • krystrakrystra Posts: 25Registered Users
    Like the last post maybe smooth jazz. Lol

    I'd say a medium, in terms of high-deep (for a female voice), mellow and slightly breathy with moderate inflection.

    Smooth and even were the first words that came to mind! Very pleasant, I think... I think you'd make a great narrator for something!

    Ive been told that before. When I was a receptionist I'd answer the phone but lots of times no one would say anything. It was pretty frustrating until someone finally said, "I thought you were a recording."

    It's very clear and precise. Smooth, too. Not breathy or nasally at all. I can see why you've had people think you were a recording, both because of the clarity and because in certain parts there was very little inflection.

    There were a few high moments but overall I think you have a medium tone.

    I agree with everyone else.
    As a non-native English speaker, I d say your voice is very, very clear and very pleasant too.

    I agree with what everyone's said. Very mellifluous. Strong, clear enunciation, but gentle-sounding and mild. On the high-low continuum, definitely closer to high. I agree with the previous poster who said it was a voice for radio, but more specifically it reminds me of an NPR voice. Maybe a specific NPR person? I'm not sure.

    Yeah, I was going to say friendly and professional. But I like 'pleasant and refined' better (it's more refined ;)).

    Feminine, very pleasant and calm. I didn't find it high pitched, just medium, clear, perfect enunciation, no regional accents.
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

    Thanks, everyone! I'm flattered by the comments. I never thought of my voice as radio-worthy before.

    Didn't someone say I sounded like Beyonce or the lady from Sweetie Pie's? Where'd that post go?

    Um, yeah, you don't sound anything like Beyonce. I was like :scratch: And I don't know what Sweetie Pie's is.

    LOL Thanks, I don't think so either. Wendy Williams recently said Bey sounds like she has a 5th grade education. So I HOPE I don't sound like her. Sweetie Pie's is a TV show on the O network I think.
