The Best Tips for Vocal Quality

  • Speaking

    Practice varying your inflection by reading passages from children’s books because that type of delivery lets you exaggerate and experiment with your vocal tone and range.

  • Before you speak, don’t eat heavily or drink soft drink or milk. Carbonated beverages will give you a dry mouth, and milk products can make you feel like you need to clear your throat.

  • Try deep-breathing exercises before your presentation. Practice using your diaphragm so that your stomach puffs out, but your shoulders don’t rise.

  • Practice by recording your presentation. Listen to identify what vocal qualities you need to work on.

  • Vary the pitch of your voice. Our voices often go higher when we’re nervous, so try breathing exercises to help normalise your voice.

  • Vary your tone, volume, and pace to add emphasis and colour to your presentation.

  • Warm up by stretching your face and neck before the presentation.

  • Use practice phrases to help you improve your enunciation.

  • Don’t end sentences with an upward tone like you do when you ask a question.

  • Articulate plosives, such as b, d, t, and k, especially at the end of words. This helps with your diction.
