Top 5 Voice Feminization Tips for Male to Female Transgenders

Are you afraid to speak up in public?

Do you fear that your voice will sound too masculine?

In this guide you’ll find out how to feminize your voice most effectively.

Deep voice can be a big turn off, and from my experience a big source of stress, anxiety and depression.

Having a sexy, thin, high pitch voice is essential for improving your feminine appearance, confidence and long-term happiness as a female transgender.

People are social creatures, we have to communicate to one another. Communication and quality human interaction nurtures our well-being.

If you’re just getting started on your MtF journey, please don’t bet on withdrawing from social interactions and being alone, just in order to keep your masculine voice a secret. My sincere suggestion is to work on voice improvement from day one.

Think about it this way, you can’t stay quiet forever, you’ll have to speak up eventually.

So why not exercise your voice now? Then you’ll avoid the problems I had.

For me personally, changing the voice was my biggest cause of stress and intimidation.

I was feeling depressed, but I wasn’t quite sure what was the source of my depression.

After a lot of self-help psychology books and consultations with my psychologist, I realized that the source of my depression was the feeling of loneliness caused by lack of human interaction. I was afraid to speak, because I didn’t feel my voice was as feminine as I wanted it to be.

I worked so hard on improving my feminine image that I totally ignored exercising my voice.

From my experience, changing the voice pitch was one of the hardest things I done on my journey to becoming a woman.

Luckily, it didn’t take me long, because naturally I didn’t have very deep voice.

However if you have a deep manly voice, there are pitch-altering surgeries (Feminization laryngoplasty), which shorten the length of the vocal cords to get more feminine and high pitch voice.

But before you consider a voice surgery, let me share my top 5 trick for getting a more feminine voice.

Remember that doing this can take a lot of time, so you have to be patient.

Use the right pitch

Although there is a misconception that the female and male pitch are very different, the reality is that there are a few differences here and there. However, they are not as major as you may think.

Just about all people have a rather similar pitch. Sure, the woman’s pitch is a bit higher, and the tone is less powerful, but the results are still pretty good. That’s the thing which matters here, the fact that you do need to change your pitch. But you need to do just a slight change.

Females have a speaking pitch of around 180 Hz, and their range is around 140 to 300 Hz in total. The regular transgender persons end up getting close to the 300 Hz range, so you don’t have to adjust the pitch that much. The gender-neutral pitch can be around 155-185 Hz in most cases actually, so just a slight adjustment will be needed.

If is important that you don’t talk from your head because it will sound like mickey mouse voice. It is very hard to keep your voice at a high pitch level all the time, and it also sounds annoying.

Your Adam’s apple can be a great indicator if you are using the right pitch. If it is almost invisible and positioned higher than usual, then that is a good sign that you are using the right female pitch. That is why I suggest my clients to practice in front of a mirror and closely look at the Adam’s apple position.

Enunciation matters

This is the way you pronounce words. The female dialect is simple, suave and more nuanced.

You don’t want to opt for things that are hard to pronounce, nor do you want to speak very fast. Enunciating words and focusing on speaking slowly instead of speaking fast is very important. In fact, this is the basis of voice feminization.

You don’t want to say too much, but the stuff you say needs to be easy to understand and to the point.

Use the right frequencies

You will also need to change the dynamic range when you do voice feminization.

The idea here is that men tend to have a rather narrow dynamic range. While they can extend it, they rarely do and that makes it harder for them to use different voice frequencies.

When you do voice feminization techniques, you will be able to expand on your voice and the way you speak. It all comes down to how much you practice and what type of training you do.

Women have a wider dynamic range, and that makes it a lot easier for them to shift the way they speak.

Now that you are a woman you can try to do voice feminization exercises and adapt everything to suit your needs.

But it will work rather well in the end, as long as you have enough patience.

Convince yourself to go through a lot of practice and also study the way other women talk. It will be very easy to get the results you want this way.

Change your vocabulary

There are masculine and feminine words in any language.

If you want to opt for voice feminization, your focus has to be on using feminine words. It helps you showcase a female presence. Opt for nuanced words and practice things like inflections and embellishments.

These are a part of the female vocabulary, and you are bound to get some really good results if you use this type of approach, you can rest assured of that.

If you want to change your vocabulary, you need to have a more feminine way of thinking. So yes, you have to think and act like a female and slowly shift towards this type of approach in a unique and meaningful way.

Your grammar is very important as well

Usually, voice feminization does rely on the way you change and adapt your grammar. A lot of this has to do with power brokering. When you create sentences,voice feminization will require you to use parentheticals and modifiers. You don’t want to show a lot of power with your grammar. Leave that to men. It helps you obtain some really interesting results and the value can definitely be quite distinct and impressive.

If you use these tips, you will have no problems doing voice feminization the right way.

Opting for such an approach is helpful, and it’s going to offer you some nice benefits. Don’t rush, and instead take your time to test and improve your voice gradually. It’s not going to be very easy, but it’s not super hard either. As long as you have the focus and commitment to improving this, results will be great!
