Is it forced?

Is it forced?

Crisp, clear, perfect pronunciation leaving nothing to guesswork. Speed control for the audio would be a handy tool to have available.

But, it also sounds as though the speaker is forcing the words from deep down in his throat and contracting the abdominals. At a normal conversational speed I've never heard an hispohablante speak like that . . .

Hola Garry

Glad you found it very clear and understood everything.

The reason why it sounds as you are describing is because some of the voices we use for our reading exercises are from actors and they have their own techniques as you can imagine. I wouldn't be able to explain with detail as I'm not one of them : ) but I'm sure you know what I'm referring to. This text was recorded by a Venezuelan voice actor for example.

Saludos
