Did you know I still get “Is your mom home?” on the telephone? My voice sounds so young… It’s irritating because I am 47! But right now since I am sick, my voice sounds like Tina Turner…. YIPEE!
What does your voice sound like?

I was once told I had a “deep, rough, sexy voice.” Idk though!

idk, it’s pretty high pitched I guess? I’m a high soprano, so yeah. I don’t know if it sounds young or not.

LOL I’m 27 and sound about 12 on the phone. Anytime a telemarketer calls I tell them my mom’s not home and I’m not allowed ot speak to strangers. I am an office manager at a law firm during the day, courthouse employees are always a little baffled.

I get mistaken for a kid ALL the time. And they usually ask me to speak up too, lol. I also look about 5 years younger than I am, so maybe I should just accept it and see it as a compliment?
I have a very soft and slightly high speaking voice – but I’m also a coloratura soprano (operatic) and I try not to use my voice too often other than for singing.
Since music clips were brought up, here’s a really bad quality clip of me singing a generic solo in choir when I was about 16, lol. I dislike the song, but I don’t have any better songs on my computer…

High, like a little kid, but LOUD. Oh my God, my voice carries everywhere no matter how quietly I try to speak. It’s gotten me in trouble more than once.
I remember once in highschool I was gossiping and called some girl a slut. My teacher at the other end of the room turned around and shouted “Harleyq! What did you say!?” So then the entire class was completely fixasted on me because they either heard me or was wondering what the teacher heard and I was like, “Do you really want me to say it again?” lol.

I have a fairly deep voice but I also get really easily excited so it can raise in pitch and volume pretty quickly if I don’t watch out. I get Shhhh’d alot, which gets annoying, because I never think I’m being loud (maybe I’m just deaf?)
I also sound EXACTLY like my sister over the phone. I’ve actually mistaken her voice for mine on messages before. It’s a wonder my parents ever call the right person back lol. And thankfully my sister wasn’t really mean, because my calling BF’s would often be like “Hey Babe!” and have no clue it was her!

I think my voice is kind of low pitched for a woman :-/ Apparently I sound just like my mom, though, since her own husband and brother often mistake me for her over the phone (I guess it doesn’t help that our phone numbers are only one digit apart, haha).

I work in sales, and primarily phone sales, and I have customers all the time comment on how slow I talk and with such a rich Southern accent ( my territory is in the NE & West Coast!). Thats all I know!
The only thing that comes to mind when they say that is Forest Gump– and I KNOW that I do not sound like him!

All I know is that my voice is annoying as hell. I was recording video of my friend’s baby on a visit recently and I was talking to her Dad in the background and I just sounded mentally deficient. I hate hate hate my voice. What I hear in my head is much different. I do know that I have a Midwestern accent and say my vowels funny.

@Leland: If you put your hands behind both ears and push them forward while cuping your hands, you can hear what your voice sounds like to others. For the most part. It helps me when I want to record a voicemail cos I don’t like having to redo it 15 times :/

I like my voice well enough in my own head, but when I hear it recorded, I absolutely hate it. It’s weirdly deep, and I kind of think I sound like a man.
