I'm a girl and I'm looking to improve/make my voice more feminine. I've tried looking into voice training but the majority of the resources I found was for mtf trans and most of it was about adams apples. Any tips or any advice?
You're fine. You sound a bit young desu, but your will will probably mature quite well.
If you're hyper conscious and want to do something, just practice your diction and enunciation, and learn to speak with more of your mouth.
I'm guessing you have confidence issues in general and that makes it so you tend to try to speak with a very small part of your mouth, and it's causing your words to be half mumbled at times.
Well, there's nothing inherently wrong with your voice. You sound like a girl, I don't think there would be any mistaking that. Sure, you sound younger than your age, but that doesn't really matter in the end. Anybody who judges you based on the tone of your voice is shallow anyway.
You should relax, slow down, breath properly. Can you try recording something you don't read? Just a stream of thoughts or an improvised conversation? I feel like this would help to hear your real "talking voice".
I sound like a child. It's annoying at times, like when people on the phone ask for my parents, but it's my voice so people with problems can fuck off. I decided to stop being shy about it when I hit 27. GL
That was way better! I actually think your voice is pretty cute. It has a raspy thing i like. What exactly do you want to change? What makes you think your voice isn't feminine enough?
I've been to over ten different psychologists and quite a few psychiatrists as well. My advice for the future is - if it doesn't work out too well the first time your psychologist, give them one more chance and if they still blow it, know that there are both good and bad ones out there, and that you may have hit a bad one. I hope you don't though. Anxiety is seriously the worst...
Well you could try imitate what popular female ASMR artists use on youtube. Technique is called whispering which is mostly about softening your voice as much and possible while slowing down your speech to more relaxed pace. Don't know if it'll make you sound more feminine though but might bring up hypnotic qualities of your voice.
That was my first thought too. But i have no idea which ones are good and have lovely voices. Also, you won't be able to whisper all the time, there must be a way to soften your voice all the time.
I'm telling you, it was very easy to tell you weren't male, or a kid. Yes, you sound young, but that doesn't mean you don't sound feminine.
If you want a lighter voice, you need to exercise and that takes dedication. Try http://caricole.com/5-secrets-to-make-your-voice-sound-better/
It may be about singing, but it can work for normal speaking as well
Well most ASMR artist don't really compare to the God of ASMR Bob Ross, but many of them do a pretty good job like Marie from channel gentle whispering and Ally from channel ASMRRequest. Bob Ross shows pretty well that you don't really need to "whisper" to make your voice hypnotic and relaxing.
Maybe try googling female vocal fry. It seems to have suddenly become a big stupid deal for some reason, after one feminist encouraged women to do vocal training to eliminate it, and other feminists got butthurt at the policing of femininity.
But in any case, it's a good key word that could probably get you going to some resources for this specific issue geared towards cis women.
Voice deepening exercises revolve around moving the head up toward the ceiling
(which stretches vocal chords) while saying Ding, Dong, King, Kong, Bing, Bong.
Holding "ng" sound for a full breath each time and lowering a note down before next breath.
This exercise works for men, so the opposite might work for Women.
You sound pretty feminine to me, you've got a cute voice.
If you wanted to practice enunciating words better a good trick is to put a pen in your mouth horizontally, so like, between your cheeks, then speak for a bit.
Otherwise I'd say just make sure you're breathing properly and stuff, you sound quite nervous, which is cool, just relax, and your voice will be less shaky. That's not really something you can exercise, other than maybe just speaking to yourself around the house and stuff.
