    Default Listening to your own voice

    So, as part of applying to a local government graduate scheme, I've had the displeasure of recording video responses to three questions set by the Local Government Association.

    I'll neglect to mention the technical difficulties (my favourite was the video not recording the first 10 seconds of my recordings!) or the hate I have on my stammering (the first question alone took nearly twenty re-records; the website said it would only take 10-15 minutes; they were wrong).

    But no, my voice. Is. Awful. I am honestly surprised people don't make a weird face every time I open my mouth. It sounds so nasally, and much deeper than what my voice sounds like in my head. It sounds so bad. I'm embarrassed having to play back my responses.

    Does anyone else have this? Mr. Carny insists his voice sounds even posher than it does originally, as if that was even possible, but do you cringe at your own voice, or actually rather like it?

    See, this is how much I hate the sound of my own voice, I shy away from any and all voice recording software.

    It's an online sound hosting service that lets you record your voice as well.

    I used to hate it, but I've grown to accept that is just how I sound, it's no big deal! Nobody has ever said they didn't like the sound of my voice for any reason. My accent though.....

    My voice sounds so much better in my head than on a recording. I honestly feel it just sounds boring. It's why I don't do videos or voice commentaries, I'd fall asleep listening to my own stuff. At least other people don't seem to mind it.

    Night Fury's voice is adorable. I love how she says my name in particular.

    I find my voice really cringey and annoying. Honestly don't understand how people can stand to listen to it.

    Used to care about how I sounded, don't anymore because I have to periodically listen to myself speak for quality checks at work, so. My voice is fine.

    Longer, serious answer: Though I still kinda hate it, I'm much more comfortable with my voice recordings. I used to think it was way too high pitched and nasally, but I like it better now, after actively altering it to be a bit more, uh, grainy.

    I hate my voice. In my head I sound like I have this deep memorizing voice, then I hear a recording and I go who is that child speaking. It's just awful.

    My voice always surprises me by how deep it is. It definitely doesn't sound that deep to me when I'm speaking, but there you go

    When traveling my accent is usually well received which is a plus.
