Gadgets can be useful, helping to make our lives easier. They can also be a fantastic source of entertainment, which is what most people think of when it comes to voice changer devices. Voice changers are sometimes seen as a novelty, perfect for pranks but not fit for much else.
Would it surprise you to learn that there are actually many practical uses for voice changer gadgets? When used in the right circumstances, they can be extremely useful – protecting our identities and potentially even keeping us safe.
Here are 5 of the many reasons to use these handy devices…
Do you keep getting the same old annoying calls from pushy salespeople not willing to take no for an answer? Or are you receiving more worrying calls and want them to stop? A voice changer can be handy in both of these situations:
You may also find that being able to switch gender or otherwise alter your voice is helpful when you’re the one making phone calls. For example, a young woman calling a garage for a quote for car repairs may be given a higher quote than an older man asking for the same thing – simply because the garage owner makes an assumption that the woman won’t know the fair price for the work due to a lack of knowledge or experience with vehicle repairs. If you use a voice changer to call first as a man and then as a woman, you’ll be able to expose businesses who adopt this sexist approach and demand a fair quote.
There are lots of situations in which you may need to ask questions or seek information without disclosing your identity. For example:
Ever wanted your own secretary? With a voice changer, you can be your own secretary or receptionist – which comes in particularly handy in a business or office situation when you want to fob someone off. If you’re swamped with work or simply want to avoid a particularly persistent client or unpleasant confrontation, simply answer the phone using voice changer gadgets. You can play your new secretary, politely informing the caller that you are too busy to come to the phone.
Of course, living such a double life in the office can be a difficult and confusing business to manage, so it’s probably best used only for those rare conversations you really want to avoid!
If you’re planning an event, presentation or video and you don’t have a large budget for actors, extras or additional team members, a voice changer could help. With just one of these clever devices, you can play a cast of hundreds in your production. You can lend credibility and professionalism to any event with smart, prudent use of a voice changer. For example, you can use one to introduce yourself at an event, record multi-character scripts and add extra voices to presentations.
Most of us like to keep our personal and professional lives separate. However, there are situations in which your hobbies and other personal activities could affect and possible harm your work life – particularly when it comes to the online world.
For example, if you like to express your opinions in a podcast. These opinions (i.e. political) or the language you use to express them may not be compatible with your professional life or the values of the company you work for, so you may want to keep your identity secret when recording your podcast. A voice changer can provide complete protection from a colleague or boss identifying you if they happen to hear the podcast.
What to look for in a voice changer
The most important quality of a voice changer device is authenticity – the voice needs to be believable as a human voice or it will never be effective for any of the purposes above. You should also look for portability, compatibility with the phones you tend to use and the number and variety of voice changing options available. Charge time, battery life and ease of use are also very important.
