I haven't seen any free ones. There are not that many that actually measure pitch of human voice. The cheapest one I've come across an use is  "Voice Analyst" By Speech Tools Limited and it costs $17.99. I've used it and it works, but sometimes chops the end off the recording, but you can save recording and compare and it gives your average pitch. There were a few other ones I came across, but they were $49 and up.

There is an open source program called Praat, that works really well (but has a confusing interface, but it's easy once you get used to it.) Praat works in OSX, Windows, and Linux. There is a tutorial here and here on how to use it to measure pitch.

Ohh and here is a table to go by



If you can keep your average in the 195 Hz range, your doing pretty good.

insTuner.  It's free and good.  It's for measuring pitch.  Oops... it used to be free.  Now it isn't :(.  Still, just $4 and I can vouch for it, and there is a free version of it, I presume with ads.  Maybe try that one first.

There is a voice lesson app that is also not free, but reasonably priced if it works... idk.  Ofc there are several modules and it can add up:

I have never used it, so I can't say whether it's good or bad from personal experience.  I just have heard about it.

Your welcome :)

I can totally relate to you. When I was younger I grew up with 2 languages (German and English) and somehow developed a stutter. It took me several years to get over it, but I always had a difficult time with pronunciation. One of my challenges speaking as a women was to pronunciate each letter more and that has improved dramatically to where now I don't mind hearing my voice so much. Also slowing down, but that's from my step-father who encouraged me to do that because his a native New Yorker and Italian. When I moved from NC to NYC area (the first time) he said I talked to slow for the north and pushed me into talking faster. That works against having a feminine voice when you end up running your words together.

I've been using my guitar tuner app.  It's called gstrings and is available free on android, not sure if it's available for IOS though.  It works really well for me.  :)

I've heard Pitchlabs is a good free app on Android.  I've tried to use it, but I can't.  Plus, I'm not to worried about my voice anymore.

I found an ios app called Eva breathe and pitch there not free I think $4.99 each with maybe 5 stages of different apps breath pitch 1,2,3,4 I can't remember how many Eva pitch.  Eva is exceptional voice app designed by or with a speech therapist Kathy Perez.  I've been looking at another program called praat right now then I was gonna research the Eva app of iTunes and try to pick one myself.  Praat has good reviews I think Eva does to the speech therapist who designed it made it specifically for transgender patients and she does online clinics for those who buy it that's all I know about it so far.

After reading this thread I remembered I had a guitar tuner I found for free at Google Play store for my Android tablet "Pitch Lab Lite," tried it and lo and behold, it did give pitch readings.

Best to all!

There are quite a few voice pitch monitor apps for android but not many supporting iOS (no idea why maybe less demand or whatever).

I'd caution against obsessing too much over pitch. Realistically, the higher you can go, the better, but you'll be able to feel if it's taking undue effort, and in this sense, you don't really need these fancy pitch apps. In most cases, glottoplasty would be needed to be really consistently happy with the pitch (i.e. always in or close to female average pitch range.)

But in a practical sense, and especially if you're older, your pitch can actually be fairly low and still sound female, especially if your prosody is varied enough (upwards inflections, etc.) It's also possible to be very high pitched and still sound male (Ross Matthews, anyone?)

More focus on larynx placement and vowel formation. If you studied the pitch range of female voice actors (Kate Mulgrew) you'd be floored at how incredibly low they can go and still sound female, while rarely even entering the average female pitch range. That's because they have these two traits down solid.

Battles of "well i'm 150hz and shooting for 200hz" are kind of a moot point compared to this.

It works and does show your pitch in the female or male range after your record the reading of a passage.
It has voice exercise routines that have you saying words and phrases.  You need to by add-ins to get all of the voice exercise routines.

It was of some help.

Chrissy
Be a good example of good behavior.  Always be kinder than needed.  Be tender to others.  You are as beautiful as the thoughts you think and the words that you speak.   Always stay cheerful, be polite, kind, and understanding.  Knowledge and action shown without love is not impressive.  If you look for the good in people you will find it. Healthy relationships are so important to good living.  Serve others.

Good living, joy, unity, love, and happiness can come from following these practices: Never let selfishness or conceit motivate you.  Regard others as more important than yourself.  Do not limit attention to only your interests, but include the interests of others

It is not usually about how fast you transition, it is about how well you transition.

My coach taught me to use a program called Praat.

It's not super intuitive, but it's v powerful. And free.

My voice therapist recommended a free iOS app called Voice Tools that I've used. It shows you in real time whether your voice is in a masculine, feminine or androgynous range. It prompts you to repeat sentences that are shown at the bottom of the screen but you can say whatever you'd like. When you hit stop it plays back the most recent 10 seconds, or so. You don't have to listen if you don't want.

As others have mentioned, pitch is just one facet of a feminine voice. There's a transwoman I've seen on YouTube who has a series of videos recorded over a seven year period or so and you can compare where she started to where she ended up. She has a very feminine-sounding voice, in my opinion, but when I play her voice to the app it's often in the androgynous or masculine range.
