How to have an audible voice?
We all like to have an audible voice, but if someone asks us what does it mean or how can we have it, we cannot find a proper answer.
In this article, you learn how to have an audible voice by simple practices. If you do practice right, you can have an audible sound which is an essential factor in your presentations and public speaking and has a significant effect on them.
Having an audible voice is an inevitable factor for actors, actresses, and showmen. If someone wants to have a presentation or public speaking, he has to have an audible voice too. It doesn’t mean we have to yell or shout. The intensity and the audibility are not so much alike but they are related to each other. When we want to talk loud or calm, it affects the intensity of our voice but sometimes you can lower your voice and whisper, it still can be audible and attract the audience. There are some tips to have an audible voice which I explain some of the important ones.
1- Comfortable body
First, our body must be comfortable when we talk. How? We have to stand straight; our chest goes a little bit forward so that the air comes and goes to our lungs smoothly. We have to take deep breaths. For example, in opera, you probably have seen that the singer stands straight and takes deep breaths because they need a tremendous amount of air and oxygen.
Second is the direction you stand. Sometimes some speakers are looking at their papers at the last moment and they don’t see the audience. So the audience can’t hear his voice. You have to attend the audience you are talking to. You have to turn to their side. Your mouth must be in that direction. For example, if we are looking at the powerpoint slides on our computer, we don’t have to talk. We have to wait and then start talking again when we are looking at the audience and our mouth is in their side.
Some speakers see breathing as an extra factor and don’t take it seriously. When we usually breathe, we don’t breathe deep to fill our lungs with air. It’s not the real breath. We falter and it is annoying.
4- Vowel sounds
Forth, we have to pronounce the vowel and silent sounds correct. Some people forget about the whole presentation and they notice how the speaker is saying vowel and silent sounds, did he make a mistake once, or is it how he speaks?
I assure you if you assist these points and you don’t make the same mistakes, you can have an audible voice and as a result, you can provide the presentation you expect.
