Reverse Speech examples said to be like- subconcious backwards messages revealed in the words sounds

Updated on May 10, 2011


There can definitely be a difference between reverse speech from a manufactured voice such as microsoft sam and speech from a live person.Obviously a live person's voice is infinitely more variable in the use of inflection while speaking which imparts intelligible variances in the reverse of their speech that requires more than a program like microsft sam is capable of.Although I have been able to modify the spoken as well as what microsft sam speech appears to be saying.It requires a change in speed,tempo,pitch or any combination of the three.for a variation in the Inflection of the voice and may require more than these three changes though.I need to do more research on the matter for a more difinitive answer.I have used microsoft sam to record text to speech and there are some very Interesting reverses.Some of which I list below.





The only difference of course being the word said before the word license in all three examples.

Now the word GOVERNMENT when reversed using microsoft sam sounds like -DOESN'T PROVIDE whereas in another example the reverse sounded to me like - NOT YOUR LIFE ,but I seem to having some trouble decerning which is more likely,I think - DOESN'T PROVIDE is the more accurate of the two. Now,I'm thinking that I may be having difficulty decerning exactly what the reverse sounds exactly like because it's not perfectly clear to me

at times and certainly not in this instance.Because it seemed open to interpetation.This is possible wiith a live person at times of course if their speech is not clearly decernable.Inflection definitely plays a role.Some say we hear what we want to hear.That may be true.Interpetation is dependent on exspectation to some degree.Then again more than one Interpetation is possible.This is not to say that all speech can be interpeted as sounding like something else.

Another aspect of reverse speech is Echoing.Echoing reveals yet other words as a result of staggering two or more recordings that are the same, one over the other.There are times where you can hear a fading echo at the end of the speech that reveals a new word or words that may be related to the other words that I find Interesting.

      Most computers already have a record function that allows you to record and reverse speech. The one below is what I use.

      I get the same comment from some people I know.They seem to be afraid of it.They must be afraid what it would reveal about them I can understand that,but my personal take on it is everyone has their faults.Like the saying goes - "Show me yours and I'll show you mine."

      I see it as a tool to use wisely.

      Interesting topic. I've been aware of these sorts of things for years. I think I'm trying to not think of them.
