i wanna hear ppl's voices! When you spend a long time on a forum sometimes you meet people and get to know them really well, without even knowing what they sound like. And what makes this extra interesting is we all come from various places on earth, with all sorts of accents, and different terms for things.

In this topic: If you want, record yourself reading the following list of words and then answering the questions. You can also post other voice recordings or discuss your voice/other people's voices hehe, anything related to voices, just stay appropriate and whatever.

(ALSO i stole a slightly different list than the one we used before since it's got more to it.)

this is a good site to use to record: https://vocaroo.com/

--
Words:

Aunt, Roof, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught, Naturally, Aluminium, Envelope

The Questions:

1. What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?

2. What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?

3. What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?

4. What do you call gym shoes?

5. What do you say to address a group of people?

6. What do you call the kind of spider (or spider-like creature) that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?

7. What do you call your grandparents?

8. What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?

9. What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?

10. What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

Haha, I remember doing this damned thing on 4P with you guys. Sure, let's do this.

This is why I always love to voice call with people. About half of my sense of humour is making up silly voices for things. For the sake of this challenge though, I'll save those for later. ;)

Here's me.

The audio quality's kind of poorish but I did do this on mobile and I had to convert it to a format Vocaroo supports. Yeah.

Yeehaw here's my horrid voice reading these out. Sorry about my grim breathy mess of an accent

I did one of these many years ago but i honestly think i like this word list better. Throat is not having it in like nine different ways today so i definitely did not do this in one take :^(


also i like how some of you sound exactly like i imagined you in my head, and some of you are completely different. ¯\(ツ)

I forgot there was a reason that I don't talk much on calls lol. For some reason it cuts out for a second randomly a few times, but I didn't want to record it a second time since that would be no fun

And @Rockie my god you sped THROUGH those words

"IT'S CALLED ILLEGAL."

That got me.

@Dragonite 's entry was particularly entertaining.

Rolypoly is an utterly adorable name for that bug. I had never heard that before.

Also you all have great/cute voices don't be so harsh on yourselves. I understand what it's like to hate your voice but seriously you guys need to ease up on yourselves haha.
