Have you ever heard a voice on a commercial, phone message, computer, audio book, cartoon, video game, training, promo or documentary – that caught your attention based on “their sound?” Something about “their voice” could have made you pause, hit replay or inquire. Whatever the reason for catching your attention; there was something about “the voice.” What about your voice? If you’re a student; does your instructor often call on you to read in the classroom? Do you often receive compliments on the tone of your voice and how well you speak? Now here’s a funny question – when you’re recording a message; do you hit replay a few times, because you enjoy hearing your own voice?
