Voice Modulation

It's when you are able to control your voice to the highs and lows and be able to make it a little more dramatic so that you catch the attention of the audience.

An audience judges the speaker...

... in the initial one and a half minute to know whether they are going to listen to him/her any further or not.

This leaves you with a small time span in which you are supposed to grab the attention of the audience.

Use Voice Modulation to Improve Your Speaking Voice
  • If you want your audience to quiet down, to be calm or to perhaps hang on your every word, speak more quietly.
  • f you want to rile up your audience, speak with a stronger voice. You can also use volume to convey your passion.
  • Try not to speak too quickly. Most audiences will have trouble following along. Instead, speak at a moderate pace. Slowing down your speech even more will emphasize each word.
Working With Microphones

Microphones just make any speaking mistakes or tics louder and easier for your audience to detect.

Practice speaking with a microphone before your performance and record your speech. This will help you detect words you have pronounced too loudly and times when hard consonants have caused feedback with the sound system.

Lesson 2: Beware of speaker envy

King George likely couldn’t help but feel he would never measure up to the likes of legendary orator Winston Churchill.

Lesson 3: Determination conquers all

King George VI’s success was assured as soon as he made the decision to work hard to become a more effective speaker.

One of the most important keys to improving is simple determination. If you’re serious about improving, you must speak regularly – at least once a week.

Breathe

Pace yourself

Get into a relaxed rhythm

  • Notice your pace next time you walk–what feels comfortable?
  • Let your speaking connect with your walking, and notice how your sentence structure changes. 
  • Pay attention to when you pause and what patterns naturally emerge when you let your movement drive your sentence structure.
Move from your center

To control nervous gestures, you have to add more by moving from your core–not just your arms.

Allow your full energy to flow through your entire body - it will make you appear calm and collected on the outside, regardless of what you’re feeling on the inside.
