Did you know?
The tone of your voice can actually indicate how you're feeling. Studies have found that people can detect subtle variations in the pitch of someone's voice to determine if they're feeling happy, angry, sad, or scared. Your voice is unique! Like a fingerprint, no two people have the same voice. Even identical twins have different voice patterns. The average speaking voice can be heard in a range of about 20 to 20,000 Hertz (Hz). Human ears can detect frequencies up to about 20,000 Hz, which is why higher-pitched voices are easier to hear.
