The voice in your head is what’s most important to you, and the way you use voice recognition to make informed decisions can change that.
But how does voice recognition work?
And what are the best ways to make it more accurate?
If you want to understand what makes your voice unique, consider these tips to help you better understand how to use voice-recognition technology to better understand your voice.1.
Understand Your Voice’s Tone Before you use a voice-analyzer, understand what your voice sounds like.
This might sound like a no-brainer, but understanding how your voice’s tone changes can be an essential first step to improving the quality of your voice, says Brian Nachs, a voice scientist at University of Washington in Seattle.2.
Understand Voice TypesVoice-recognitions can help you determine the tone and volume of certain sounds.
For example, if you are trying to learn how to write a sentence, the computer will try to guess which of the three tones will sound like the sound of the word you are writing.3.
Identify Your Voice TypesTo identify which voice types are most common in a person’s voice, the University of California, Los Angeles, has created an online tool called the Speech Tone Atlas that allows you to compare voice-type-based voice data to an audio dataset to see how voice changes over time.4.
Make a List of the Voices You HearThere’s no single best way to choose the voice of your next guest.
For some people, the sound that is most familiar to them is their normal voice.
For others, it’s different from what they use to communicate, such as a younger sibling.
It’s important to choose your voice types carefully, so you can make the most of your personal information.
For people who are new to voice-analysis, Nach’s research shows that a good way to get started is to create a list of voices you hear, and to keep a record of them.5.
Make an Audiotape of Your VoiceUsing a voice analysis service can also help you make an audiotape.
For instance, you could record yourself saying “I am very angry” to your computer in a voice that matches your voice type.
When you are listening to the audio recording, your computer might interpret this as a “you’re angry, so listen” voice.
In this way, you can learn more about your voice by recording a voice you identify with.6.
Use Your Own VoiceIn order to make a recording, you’ll need to record your voice and compare it to an online database of voices.
The Audiotaphone project from the University at Buffalo in New York, which uses voice analysis technology, allows people to record themselves using a microphone and compare voice to a database of voice samples.
Voice analysis services can be helpful for people who have a limited ability to make recordings, but are more willing to take the time to do so.
Nach says that using voice analysis can be useful if you want a personalized recording, for example, for a client who is new to the service.7.
Choose Your Audiotaped RecordingA good recording should have good quality audio and be easily accessible to a listener, Nechs says.

Choose a Voice That’s FamiliarThe Audiotapes provided by Audiotaping, for instance, are often made up of recordings that are familiar to people, but they are also not the voices that are most commonly heard in everyday conversations.
If you want the most accurate results, make a copy of a recording that is familiar to you and listen to it over and over again to find your voice tones.
Nech also recommends that you make a voice diary that you record each day so that you can identify how your own voice changes as you grow older.9.
Make It Easier to Record Your VoiceThe best way for you to understand how your speech changes over the years is to listen to recordings over and under, Natch says.
If your recording includes many voices, try recording a few voices at a time.
For most people, that will give you a more complete picture of how your voices change over time, she says.
