I sound fine to myself when lecturing, although maybe too soothing, so I am told, putting everyone to sleep . But the trick in general is always to let the microphone come to you. No need to shout - you are being amplified already.
Three cheers for digital sound, for sure!
I turn off the microphone always.
Was once in a very noisy pub (Palace) in Dublin. Mrs, Cuchulainn could hear my voice from the rest room on a lower floor.
In public lecture rooms I always close the door... Other speakers can become a bit annoyed..
I am immune to AlexPro Syndrome.
I've already learnt: "much slower and a bit lauder". My public voice is very airy and child-like, I'm practically whispering the endings of words (it's better when I speak very loud, but they equip speakers with a mic on suitable occasions). It's because I have a naturally low voice, which makes me sound serious and cold (according to my husband) and I developed an instinct to raise its pitch.
