If you have hearing loss, you may be unable to tell how loud you are talking. One way to test your volume is to have a close friend or family member wear ear plugs while you talk. Alternatively, you can record a conversation and see how loud you are when talking to someone who does not have hearing problems.
Identifying the aspects of your voice that make you nervous
If you are nervous when you speak, there are several ways to make it less intimidating. The first step is to identify which aspects of your voice make you feel self-conscious. If your voice is shaky or quivering, this is a common sign that you are nervous. Another sign is an overall change in pace and volume. These are all signs that you are nervous and will likely distract others. However, you can easily fix these issues with practice.
