My wife has always said she can tell if I'm in a room full of people that are all talking without even looking in the room. she is always telling me "Talk quieter" (is that a real word?) when we're in public.

It isn't just my talking voice either.

There have been several occasions when I have been in an extremely noisy area, or someone will be a good distance away, and will see someone else yelling, whistling, etc trying to get their attention with no luck. I will yell once and they hear me.

I am a confirmed loudmouth.

I get that all the time, in the house and in public. The problem is that over the years I have suffered some hearing loss and I can't help talking loud.

Same here. In the Army it was an asset. I had a booming "Command Voice" until I got hurt. It still works when getting attention but not like 36 years ago. On the other hand, when she says to lower your voice, do it. Good Luck, Rick

When I speak in public, such as reading scripture in church, I'm told I have a good clear speaking voice. When we're alone and I answer my wife, she always says "What?".

I have a buddy who has a loud voice.  His wife is always after him to hold it down.  It gets quite comical between the two of them.  He is also 6'4" and about 240 so he's a pretty big guy.  Big voice - big guy!

That's normal! Wives don't listen to a word you say!

I can be loud when I need to be. I'm a ditch digger, and need to be heard over a diesel engine at full rev every once in a while. Otherwise, I'm as quiet as a church mouse.

 

And if you believe that second part,   ..  :rolling:

Sometimes people can be heard without being loud. Enunciation is so important, not only to people with normal hearing, but it is very much appreciated to those of us with hearing loss. Even before I started saying "what" all the time, I always tried to speak clearly. I figured if people are going to be kind enough to listen to the whakjob, i might as well make it easy to hear and understand me.

So, yeah... I'm a loudmouth. :D

I am a loudmouth and then some! My wife tells me I am obnoxious at our boys football games. I make sure the other side of the stadium knows I am supportive of our team.  I am frequently told to talk quieter or there is no need to yell.  I understand well.

Enunciation, I learned, is quite critical, as Alan stated. In a recent conversation between Alan and I, he told me that I was one of the few people he could hear the first time. Of course I have been spending about 5 hours a day with Grandpa since about June. And definitely takes a coupe attempts for the communication to get through when I forget to enunciate.

By the way Alan, can.. you.. hear.. me.. now? Lol

We both have some hearing loss--- too many years of tractor driving--- and are both soft spoken by nature which doesn't help things. The point about enunciation is well taken as it sure does help. Oldedeere #2 claims she speaks two languages, English, and "YES, DEAR" . I tend to hear "YES, DEAR" pretty clearly whether she raises her voice or not!  lol
