Ways To Add Interest
Speaking in exactly the way tone of voice, at exactly the same speed, and at exactly the same volume will bore an audience, no matter how interesting the words you say are. On the other hand, an energetic and varied voice will be music to their ears.
Four ways to add interest to your speech are to change volume, change speed, change tone of voice, and use pauses.
Turning your voice volume up or down adds interest. Use both variations when they match the emotion you want to convey. For example, speaking loudly shows a lot of energy and excitement. Speak softly for sad or serious things.
Changing Speed or Pace
Pace is your speaking rate, and varying it throughout the speech adds great interest. Here are some examples:
Changing Tone of Voice
Make your voice match the feeling of your words. If you are speaking of something funny, your voice should be laughing. If you are speaking about something serious, your voice should sound weighty.
Pauses can be used for many purposes, such as:
Giving the audience time to absorb something important.
Building suspense by making the audience wait to hear your next line.
As a break between major points.
After asking a rhetorical question of the audience. This gives the audience time to answer it in their heads.
