Audio Assignment 416 Hear it Here

I wrote a very short little story that uses homophones. The words sound like other words, but can you tell what they mean without seeing the spelling? enjoy the recording.

I used a new microphone attached to headphones to do this recording. I think it is a little scratchy sounding. I need to work on making it clearer. Until this week I hadn’t made a voice recording before on a computer. When I was a child, I had a talk girl it was the pink version of a talk boy as seen in Home Alone 2 lost in New York. I spent a summer playing with that. So since then, I have not recorded myself on purpose really.

While I was considering using a computer voice generator for this assignment, I came across a web page that turns information into a pod cast script. You can then take the script and have it read in a style. I took the short story I wrote and gave it a pod cast theme that I thought would be in line with my character Lady Alice. I found it very amusing how much it read into a story I wrote in less than 20 mins.


I really feel like it captures Lady Alice. I think the podcast does a good job of connecting the assignment to my character and shows more of how I envision her to be.

  1. After listening to the old time radio shows, I can’t complain about the sound of your microphone. I appreciate the extra step with the Wondercraft site. It makes me wonder what could be built through human-AI interaction.

    1. I think I just need to learn how to edit out the background noise to get a cleaner recording sound. I may pay for the Wonder Craft site to play with it more this semester. There is only so much you can do for free. I think it could be really interesting to feed it information and have it come up with a dialog for Lady Alice. That way it would be my ideas for her and not my own voice. It would bring her more to life and less just out of my own head.
