Today, two months into my new marketing job, I presented my first webinar live to over 300 people. Half the audience complained about the horrible sound quality, saying all they could hear was a Mickey Mouse squeaky sound. Turns out it wasn't the sound quality, it was my voice. FML

Once Disney finds out, they'll sic their lawyers on you. On the up side, if any of their films are to be trusted, you'll get a spiffy new pair of legs for relinquishing your voice. Those things'll be prince magnets!

Have you considered trying voice acting?

luckily there are vocal coaches that can help you train your voice, if that doesn't work you still have the technological resort of modulating devices or microphones :) or, try auditioning for animation sync..

Well, if nothing else, at least you can take comfort in the fact that of all the characters you could sound like, you ended up with one of the more beloved ones.

As long as you nailed the speech OP nothing else matters

You can always count on about half of Americans to say or do the stupidest shit, hence , our election is competitive.

The fuck does the election have anything to do with this?

for real like wtf does it have to do with this

then u killed it! just like Walt Disney... too soon?

It's doubtful your in-person voice is that bad. Some vocal qualities translate terribly over digital audio. Chin up, and take your time while speaking in webinars to help with enunciation.

Sound guy here; It may have to do with your microphone quality and placement. Lower end microphones won't pick up base very well and if you place it too far away from your voice box, the warmth of your true voice may get lost. It's best to do an audio recording before going live to check your sound levels.

They knew it was your voice.
