“Well this is in response to Jennifer Syler poking me with a sharp stick and saying, if you don't like your voice so much then post it so we can tell. Actually what sugar this is I get a chance to interview Susiah(?) Miles from noon line on telephone today and you know everybody else involved in it, it was a conference call and their voice is were coming through on the recording how nicely modulated and then I would speak in my voice which is just like blah blah blah, I don't really mind on my voice when I hear it, it's really don't bite it on recording though you know you sit there and you just think is that what I really sound like? Like the people think of me when they hear me, anyway so there it is my voice for your consideration and now it's 8:00pm and still at work, I really should go finish engineering change orders, for data and safety monitoring board for construction, before I get in trouble, and now if you have any idea what that means and you should be very very very glad.”

Auto-Transcribed Voice Post - spoken through SpinVox

Nice! And now I'd like a few thousand dollars. Nothing too extravagant, 20 or so shall do just fine.

At first I was like "Wait! Did someone else demand a voice post too?!" and then I read the post. This led to me worrying about your status as a Coherent Being. And then I saw the phrase "auto-transcription". Let's just say that the way to get maximum enjoyment from this post is to read the transcription while listening to the audio file! HAHAHA, good work LJ auto-transcriber! "actually what sugar this..."

Oh, dear Lord. I'm not sure whether to be horrified by that auto-"transcription" and take it down, or to laugh my butt off at the insanity of it.

You know what I find weirdest of all? That the "blah blah blah" came through perfectly fine.

JENNIFER SYLER. Kskscsch, we have a new name for you! Hi Jenny!

Also, you made the voice post before I could comment and tell you that now that you've complained about your voice, we all must hear it. It's not annoying or strange, though, which is a severe disappointment!

Kskscsch, we have a new name for you! Hi Jenny!

Heh. I was going to say that, but I was afraid she might try to kill me with her mind.

To me, though, my voice sounds unattractive. I mean, I know it's not a Betty Boop voice or anything, but...I just hate hearing the answering maching message, or hearing it on tape.

I'm pretty sure that Cookie and I, at least, would be dead if Jenny could actually do that, so I think you have nothing to fear.

Isn't that true for everyone, though? We all hate hearing our own voices recorded. (Unless you're Sendhil Ramamurthy, probably. Nnngh.) Your voice didn't strike me as horrible at all. Just a normal female voice. (Sendhil Ramamurthy... mmm.)
17th-Jan-2008 04:15 am (UTC)
Oh, I would expect nothing less from you! You do understand that this is not acceptable, right? Let's agree to forget this ever happened, yes?

Also, I forgot to mention earlier that I too was disappointed by her voice's regular-ness! Where are the funny voices?!

17th-Jan-2008 04:23 am (UTC)
Well, if you say so, Jenny.

IDK! I was hoping for something squeaky or lispy or at least unusually scratchy. But no! For shame.
17th-Jan-2008 03:47 am (UTC)
'squilis! Your voice is just fine! But I hate mine, too so, perhaps I should shut the hell up.

I will now be calling K Jenny from now on.

I really want to know: was "Syler" in the dictionary of this transcription program, or did it just try to phonetically spell out what it thought was a last name?

I just don't like hearing my voice on tape. It doesn't sound bad to me when I hear myself talking. But then I hear it on tape and go...UGH.

I wonder if Sendhil likes the sound of his own voice? (Uh oh...that sounds like the start of a really bad RPS fic.)

I see a lot of :shunning: and ::ignoring:: in your future.
17th-Jan-2008 04:21 am (UTC)
Wooo, auto-transcription! That's like crazy advanced technology over there!

You sounded perfectly normal to me :) Dude, from the way you were describing yourself, I was expecting something really high-pitched and annoying....think Karen from Will & Grace, lol!
17th-Jan-2008 04:24 am (UTC)
think Karen from Will & Grace, lol!
AAAAAAA!!! I mean, I do like her, in a weird sort of way, I guess...but that voice.

I think it's mainly that my voice on tape sounds SO DIFFERENT from the way it sounds to me when I'm talking. So I was transcribing this interview I took part in and...man, I just cringed every time I heard my own voice. It reached a point where I had to scream about it to keep going. LOL
17th-Jan-2008 02:21 pm (UTC)
Hee. You sound American :D But otherwise normal. I hate the sound of my voice too- I sound like an 8 year old farmer's daughter. True story.

The thing that bugged me the most was that when I went back and listened to the voice post, there are a couple of moments where my hick twang kind of came through, even though I've spent most of my life trying to get rid of it. I get looks from people a lot, because they can tell I'm "not from around here" but they can't quite figure out where I'm from. But then, I grew up in southern Ohio, went to college in northern Ohio, watch a lot of BBC and CBC programming, and now live in Minnesota where there really are a lot of people who talk like they do in the movie Fargo. My accent can go all over the place... LOL

Oh, I know what you mean about hearing your voice on a recording and thinking "Dear God, is that ME?!!" But I think you sound just fine!

You got to interview someone from Moonlight?? Awesome!

The transcribed version is HILARIOUS! My favorite part is "Actually what sugar this is" :D
