In The Human Voice video, we hear the voice of the man
in this picture. The man counts from 1 to 20, but says
nothing else. If your computer and browser are capable of playing sound, you can download this man's speech and hear it for yourself:|
The viewer is asked to guess where the man grew up:
THE HUMAN VOICE explores the ways in which our voices communicate important clues about who we are and what we feel--and these clues slip out whether we want them to or not. Vocal paralanguage is extremely subtle, but the clues in our voices are clear and legible. This makes vocal paralanguage one of the most powerful 'channels' of nonverbal communication, and the power of the voice is celebrated and explored in THE HUMAN VOICE.
