How to Make Your Recorded Voice Sound Better on the Internet
For making a recording of your own voice to make available online, many people are currently using and recommending the free, open-source software called Audacity, which, despiite its initially formidable appearance, is as easy to operate as a $30 recorder that you could purchase at a drugstore.
All the control buttons are in the upper left-hand corner and if you mouse over them it will show you what they do. And if you have background noise or a cheap microphone and cannot afford to rent a recording studio, not to worry. Here are two brief You Tube videos on how to fancy up the presentation, once you get your recording done. The first one shows you how to make two simple adjustments using Audacity to produce major improvements in your presentation. In the second one, the same presenter shows you a few additional choice tricks. After using them, I no longer sounded like Donald Duck with tonsillitis. (Kermit the Frog, perhaps?)
