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

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.

      Jae, Sister, I can't imagine whats going through you're head now, but you know we are all here for you. You took a big step, although not intentional, but a big one never the less. Give you wife time to adjust to this development. It sounds that she wants to support you, but she needs time to figure out her own feelings. Stay strong, girl!   Big Hug,   Brandi

       Dang it sorry for the misspelled names girls,  using auto Text, my fingers are too nervous and are not hitting the right keys I’m not thinking quite straight.

      Hi Bobby and Brandi I’m sorry I’m just a little freaked out I had no intention of spilling everything last night, just kind happened and things here could get little bumpy... I’m pretty sure she’s going to stay I sure hope she doesn’t leave me. I’m so anxious I can hardly sit still keep going through bouts of trembling and worrying I love her so much I don’t know what I could do if she left... I would just beg at her feet I think. hugs, Jae
    • jae bear
      I’ve been telling her how amazing she is since the moment I woke up I think it’s getting on her nerves, I really have to give her some space and a little time and hope things work out right now she’s so quiet it makes me nervous... hugs, Jae

      Jae, I'm so happy for you! You have a wonderful woman who is willing to stand by you and that's really great. Have a great time shopping!   Love, Brandi 
    • bobbisue
           My answer would be a resounding yes and a big hug but this is your decision I am very happy for you I imagine this is a great weight off of you, be sure to tell your little bunny how wonderful she is for standing by you from yourself and from me  ((((((((((HUGS)))))))))) to both of you        bobbisue

      I spend a lot of my time listening to Radio Caroline on the radio now they have their medium wave transmitter. Not quite the pirate radio it once was (they are now legal), but still playing better music than most stations (lots of classic oldies from those days). I listened years ago when they were pirates and BBC was rubbish, with regard to modern music. In general terms they are still more to my taste!   Tracy

      I pay the credit card off at the end of every month. The issue isn't that I'm in debt, or she's in debt. The issue is that she kept using the card when we both agreed to stop using it and because I wasn't paying attention and she never does, it didn't get paid for two months. I've almost filed bankruptcy twice and pulled my fat out of the fire both times, I know what I'm doing here, I'm questioning whether or not she does.

      Thank you Rachel, she asked me to do that this morning, wanted to know if I needed help buying clothes... I think I’m still in bit of shock, I didn’t know how to answer. She’s a medical person so she’s worried about the risks... hugs, Jae
