there are few things in this world as disturbing as listening to your own voice. spent the evening transcribing a couple interviews I conducted as part of a research methods project. it was almost as painful as listening to a recording of myself performing a piece I know I messed up on.
I squirmed every time I heard myself speak. do I really sound like that? is my voice really that high? am I really that quiet? am I imagining it, or do I really manage to squeeze both american and canadian accents into the same sentence?
