I hear my voice every day. Several people do as well. I know how it sounds, and so do they.
Recently, I purchased a webcam for an online Speech class i’m taking through the local community college. After setting it up, I ran a small test to make sure it was running alright.
Hearing my recorded voice was almost like hearing a stranger. I hear my voice when I speak, and it doesn’t sound like that. I hear my voice when the room echoes, and it doesn’t sound like the recording but my friend says the recording is spot on.
What is this phenomenon?
What do I sound like? The recording, or…not? And if both, why do they sound different to me?
Thanks in advance.
