Voice too deep for lecturing? Watch
Here I am reading an extract from Frank Chalk's famous novel.
Is my voice too deep for lecturing at a university? Would my students fall asleep?
Any tips on getting my voice to be higher pitched?
I could follow you around and kick you in the balls at regular intervals? I hear that works.

Maybe just using a microphone would work, make yourself louder and clearer?
So talk more slowly, and stop mumbling. Take care to pronounce all parts of a word, which should happen naturally when you reduce your pace. Sometimes lifting your head up can help too.
1. slow down
2. enunciate your words
3. pause at the right time, i.e. not in the middle of a sentence, but after you have conveyed a part of the message.
Your voice is fine. I think you may be speaking a little low that's all. My human biology A-level teacher had a voice like this and it attracted a lot of attention/talk from us girls in the powder room. My maths A-level teacher had a high pitched one that used to crack in between his angry rants about people coming to class late, and everyone used to take the piss out of him because it was funny. Your voice is fine, really.
