I started with a REALLY HIGH falsetto. That was just to get my voice used to the higher pitches. Once I got comfortable with that, I began softening my voice until it was within a normal speaking range. Of course, this is just so you can get the gist of speaking in your female tone.

Something I did for a while was on my commute to work (of course for you, just substitute when you have some alone time since I do believe you still go to school) I would sing in falsetto to female singers who had quite a high range. This got my voice out of male range and helped adjust my vocal chords to something I could actually work with. I have been working on it for over 2 years now, and while I am never misgendered now, it did take a lot of practice and did not happen over night.

Here are some resources you may find useful:

Voice exercises

This video series is now available free on YouTube from Genderlife

And here is the workbook (also now free) that accompanies this video (Thank you my friend, Jenny: I quoted you from another post so you would get an alert)

You can download the free workbook that goes with the video. http://www.genderlif...-page/voicebook

CandiFLA method works pretty well and is a way to feel how low resonance is.

You will need a microphone/recorder (audacity is good for recording on pc).

Then when you are getting closer to the voice you want, practice practice practice until it's natural.

Check out Exceptionalvoice.com this is a website by Kathy Perez who has worked with trans woman for years to develop an exceptional feminine everyday voice. Kathy is a Speech Language Pathologist and has earned world wide fame in teaching thousands of trans woman worldwide to bring out an exceptional female voice. I now fool people over the phone after daily practice with Kathy's CD Roms practicing and learning to speak in the A3 range or 220 Htz which is the female normal voice range. Check out Kathy Perez for you best feminine voice and then practice daily at least 20 to 30 minutes. I practice on the way to work and on the way home. I love the progress I'm making improving my best feminine voice. Thanks Kathy for your excellent training program. Katheryn

Stumbled on this...yeah, she calls herself the "T" word (personally, I hate it!), but wow, this actually works quite well!

I'm still learning. I find it easier on the phone because I can hear myself and keep adjusting. It would be much more difficult if it were not for my beloved Dee Dee who was the first woman in my whole life to encourage me in seeking my true self. She is tirelessly patient and gentle with my attempts and keeps encouraging me to not give up. I also practise on my commute and when walking my dog, who doesn't seem to mind my experimentation at all, and more recently, with phone solicitors and poll takers. I too, start as high as I can in falsetto, then soften and lower. Trying for the breathy Marilyn Monroe sound helps also.

      I'm glad your life is back to normal.  That is what we all seek.  Your family sounds as if they are really trying.  Good for them!

      FYI,   https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/20/health/arizona-trans-woman-cvs-pharmacist-prescription-trnd/index.html   The article went on to say the pharmacist no longer works there. But it took filing a report to the state agency there.    How distressing.....

      Hi Chelsea         Wow, I am happy things are finally going so well for you. I am not sure what I am just yet I was born male and know that I feel female. I am still on a road of discovery about myself. If you'd like to talk I'll listen.      Natalie

      I am an avid MTG player, even though I've slowed down on my purchases due to saving money. Anyone else play? I've bought cards recently from Dominaria, but I'd love to find people to play with, maybe via Skype? I font play the online version, because, well... $$$. I also prefer the feel of a real card over a mouse.

      Hello everyone, my name is Chelsea. I was born male but dream to be female. That dream is getting closer, but has been snagged from me a few times.    I'll keep things short, because I have a blog which describes things in more detail if you're interested. I came out back in 2013, only a few months after my son was born. I was cross dressing while my wife was at work and my son slept. I came to a realization that I wouldn't be able to hide it forever, and took the big step.   After nearly divorcing, my life is back on track and my wife and I have a five year old and a two year old. I have a great job, which isn't aware of my plans yet. Transition is only a few years away, even though I was weeks away from starting at the beginning of last year.   I was suicidal not long after I came out, and have only had thoughts a few times since, when large snags came up that made it seem like I'd never be able to transition. I'm good now though.   I came here to seek new friends and discuss things, as well as help those who are where I was five years ago. I'd really like to have a few friends who are trans or anything on the spectrum. I have some great friends (read family) who are 100% supportive, but only 2 who are under the trans community. So I am really looking for someone to be able to talk to who I can be openly honest and understanding with.

      So many things are going on now.   I'm Callum 100% of the time including at work (that was scary but it makes me feel so good! Except when my boss asks awkward questions in front of everyone and decides that I must have issues with my "downstairs" Her and a male co-worker were joking about certain parts of his body but anyway) My whole family call me Callum 24/7  there are still a few mix ups but those that are finding it difficult call me CJ (Callum James) I can finally bind!!(I only do it when I leave the house.) So happy altho I've noticed that it hurts when I take it off, I don't have any pain while wearing my binder, is this nomal? I was very very very surprised but my family bought up the idea of us going to the pride parade... I wasn't even going to mention it but they said it looks interesting and have now decided we are going to two different ones. We're going to the one at the end of this month because a distant family member goes to the same one with her gay son, shes offered to show us around and then the second one is in the place we live very excited!! The whole family is going!! Even my brothers who were very "no no no" When I joked about it when I came out to them.   I just... I don't have the words... This is amazing and I find myself worried I'm going to wake up and its all a dream. I don't wanna get too used to it in case it all goes wrong or gets wrecked (I hope this makes sense)   I did have a very strange moment and I was just wondering if anyone gets what I mean or if I'm just imaging it but as I said Callum  mode 24/7 but last week I had to go back to my female clothing and its like all my awkwardness and hating myself came back, my confidence just faded away... I could feel myself not wanting to be a part of the world and I felt so down.... Does this make sense? Now I'm back to normal and I'm the life of the party again lol What a strange life I lead.   Any thoughts folks?   *happy contented sigh*

      For the first time in all my 46 years of dressing as a girl,I have gone without wearing tights.The weather here in the Uk has been so warm for so many weeks it is not practical to wear hose.I love my tights as they make my legs look great but I have not minded going bare legged.Tights can be very uncomfortable im warm weather.Most women over here do not wear tights in this hot weather.As it is always my intention to emulate genetic women I am happy to dress like they do in the summer.Without tights I wear open toed sandles and mules.It's funny in male mode when I am out I never wear mens ooen toed sandals or flip flops and wear shoes with socks.I have never been comfortable in displaying feet.However,in female mode I do not mind doing this.Must be something to do with the duality of crossdressing.

      Hello Roberta,   I can change your name if you'd like. I assume it would be Roberta-Belinda. I'll hold off until you've seen this so you won't have any problems signing in next time.

      I came out to my wife fourteen years ago.When had the talk with her she was shocked and things got brushed under the carpet.Hoeever,two years ago dressed as Roberta ostensibly to test her reaction.She fled into the other room but the next day she started to slowly come around.She said she woulc launder my clothes and my tights for me.She also said she would buy all my femme cllthes for me.She didn't want me to be seen buying womens stuff by myself just in csse I saw people I know.Her cordial attitude came on in leaps and bounds after that.She actively encouraged me by offering to treat me to lots of skirts,dresses,hosiery,shoes.As we are both rdtired I am dressed en femme nearly every day these days.She constantly tells me how nicd I look dressed,sometimes saying I look better than some natural born women.Tbe other great thing is we have pretty much the same taste in clothes and there is only four years age difference.If she ever runs out of tights,I gave her some of my multipacks and she then buys more for me.I like to think that we are good girly pals.She does say that she prefers me as a man but deep down I think she regards me as her best girly pal.I have told her that if I had been born a woman she would bd my closest woman buddy.We are more or less like that nlw.But I think there are times that I should asert my masculine side and perform my husbandly duties,which is only fair
