Judging by Voice

It's the main strategy that I use when I first meet someone; I use the sound of their voice to develop my judgment of them.  Or I should restate it as follows:  I depend on the sound of their voice to help me develop a mental picture. 

 

I favor voices that are firm, strong, and unfaltering.  I like voices that are easy to understand, clear in diction, and voices that are void of uncertainty.  However, I do my best to be fair and unbiased.  Not everyone has a voice that would possess these qualities but you know what?  A voice that is certain non hesitant is the one that I would more often than not favor.

 

If you think of it, when we make phone calls and whether or not we are sighted, we almost always judge the person at the other end by the sound of their voice and when we listen to the radio, it is almost always the same.  We judge by voice.

 

I'm Donna J. Jodhan your friendly accessibility advocate wishing you a terrific day and inviting you to go out there and tell others that most of the time; we all judge others by the sound of their voice.
