The Human Voice

The human voice is capable of various dimensions making it possible to identify one person to another

Elements of the human voice

Voice Qualities

                   IT refers to the timbre of the voice. This characteristic distinguishes one voice from another. Qualities could be soft, harsh, husky nasal, breathy, or thin. This distinctive characteristic of voice makes it pleasant or unpleasant to hear

Here are the varying voice qualities:

  1. Normal Voice – in conversation, you speak naturally showing little or no emotion
  2. Breathy Voice –when you want to create an atmosphere of secrecy and mystery you use a breathy or whispery voice
  3. Full Voice – In many forms of public speaking when the voice must be projected t a greater distance, or when an occasion is formal and dignified, you see the full, deep quality of your voice, it is usually used when one wants to create a mood of reverence and solemnity, melancholy, stirring appeal for justice or sobriety
  4. Chesty Voice – this is a deep hollow voice as if coming from a deep and empty cave. Its voice quality has less nasal resonance and it is accompanied by a vibration in the bony structure of the upper chest, thus making it a chesty voice with a “pectoral” quality. This voice can be used when speaking a part of a spirit or a ghost

Thin Voice  – This voice quality is thin and high pitched, the high pitch being is its chief characteristic. This “Falsetto” quality occurs only in extreme fatigue, weakening, old age, ill health, or in extreme excitement

Voice Levels (Pitch)

                   Pitch concerns how high or low a voice may be. Pitch is another element of voice which shows emotions. It is the location of the sound on the musical scale and is determined by the tension applied to the tone-producing mechanism – the vocal chords. Varying the pitch mean going up and down the scale so that voices could be described as high, medium, or low.

 Voice Intensity

                   Voice intensity is a quality in speaking that arises from strong feeling. Never confuse it with mere loudness of tone. IT pertains to the force used in speech. This amplification of the  tone is caused by the force of the expiratory air stream and the efficient use of the resonators, not by the constriction of the throat. Intensity also refers to the effect of a sound on the ear- which may mean loudness or softness

Volume and Voice Projection

                   Volume is the degree of loudness; and projection is the process of directing the voice to a specific target

Voice/Speech Rate

                   Speech rate pertains to the speed variations in speaking. Slow speech projects such personality characteristics as calmness, acceptance, and formality. If the speech is very slow, it may project an image of dullness, listlessness, apathy, laziness, and sometimes lack of intelligence. Rapid speech projects animation, enthusiasm, excitement, and informality
Public Speaking As A Communication

                   Public Communication – also known, large group communication, is a form of communication consisting of a speaker who acts as the source of information and a public or group of people who receives the information related. In this wet up, immediate and obvious feedback is not necessary, sometimes, restricted, because of the physical and psychological distance between the speaker and the audience. This form lacks the spontaneity of the face-to –face communication.

Examples of this kind are the speeches to inform, to persuade, and to entertain which are usually given before an audience
