I have tried this week to get some short videos in the orchard etc.

John has been great - using his phone very professionally and the pictures etc have come out great.
There is a problem.....

I have a quite distinctive accent which is accentuated on the video unfortunately. Kieran laughed his head off when he watched the first two we did. He says I sound like Rab C Nesbitt's wife!

Needless to say, I am horrified and depressed. I cant put these on the website.
But I cant put on an English accent or get someone else to do it for me.

1. There's almost certainly nothing wrong with your voice anyway.

2. Why can't you get someone else to do it if you're not comfortable?

I'm assuming that you're going to host them on youtube and then embed from there? You could post them here first and see what we think.

If I may say (remembering a stay when you had the B&B a few years back), you have a lovely Scottish accent which would be a positive feature to any video. However, if you really aren't comfortable with it, maybe get someone else to do a commentary?

if you use a good sound recorder (digital or tape )with a decent mike and avoid the built in phone/camera mike ,ie record decent sound and edit it onto the pictures in movie maker (or whatever edit suite you can get free use of ) it might seem very different . trying to record voice with a phone or camera mike always sounds dreadful.

if you use a camera most have a jack plug for an external mike /s ,that would be much nicer than the sound from even a good modern phone.

nae rang wi speakin clyde (understanding easterhoos might be an issue for a few folk )

i recon the equipment is the problem rather than the voice

ps most pooters have a socket that can take a decent mike or some even have a couple built in ,this one isnt studio quality but it is stereo and far better than a phone mike ,so a lappy or tablet with camera and mikes could do the task.

Accents always seem more pronounced on recordings, and it is a shock hearing yourself recorded. I hate to hear myself.

I sound as though I'm straight out of Brummie land on the 'phone and completely different otherwise. I happen to like the Glasgow accent. The only problem is that when some folks speak they use their word for something rather than the "Queen's English" word, now that can be a problem, eg. Brummies use 'orr' for 'yes'. My neighbour thinks I'm straight out of the Home Counties, and he is very Welsh. Not sure what Ty Gwyn thought of my accent when we met, but we understood each other perfectly well!
All I am saying is "just do it" it is no problem!

Well David,you did`nt sound Brummie to me,certainly not like the Brummie i had helping me back in August/September,he must have been an Auctioneer in another life,lol.
I tend to agree with your neighbour,i understood you well,and we had a good old conversation,but did worry at times you would understand my strong deep Welsh accent,but we gone on well and had a good lunch,will have to again someday,as i need to see the landlord about some of these Wild Boar.

Okay, okay, youve persuaded me I dont sound as bad as I think I do. Now that we have mini videos - can I just embed on my website or do I have to upload or whatever to Youtube? What is the deal ?

You would have to put them on your website or youtube for me-I don't do the 'social services' of twitter etc. I feel brave coming on here! Thanks for that John, I was from the worst bit-Walsall! I had no problem with your Welsh, pity I didn't learn more of the language when I first came up here, I can do basic Welsh, but not well as I don't remember too well, and didn't do the homework! I hoped you might be up for the Royal Welsh show, Dave the butcher is there all week and he does the Smallholder show in May at Builth too.
I can't help you with the download stuff I am pretty virginal when it comes to pooting. We have a man coming to the library to help me to put photos on here with my text, and how to send photos to Aus to my friends without grief-My trouble is I forget how to.....!
