Just wondering, I want to make a GT challenge video but I'm that pessimist that I think people won't understand what I'm trying to say. .-. Ofc I'll use my voice because editing the text in a vid is so complicated, huehuehue.

Challenge is secret for now, so no one copies me in the span of a month.

Even if I'm gonna do that, FYI, it'll be in a month or so. After my final exams.

Please vote in the poll and say why, or comment on whatever.

I can abide poor pronunciation in videos if the verbalization is comprehendible. If it is beyond comprehendible then I won't even bother endeavoring to understand it.
But really, for it to be far beyond comprehension for me, you would literally have to be verbalizing some other foreign language as I have had my fair deal of illiterate children whom mispronounce every second word (I have a brother).

I totally tolerate it because I know not everyone can speak English. Good luck with your new vid :rolleyes:

Yeah I tolerate it :D



It doesn't even bug me at all...from your posts I am 100% sure people will understand everything.






Good luck on the video.

Whats wrong with illiterate children ? They are humans too..
Suddenly.. #ANTI-ILLITERATE ! Anyways, poor pronunciation in a video doesn't really affect the contents of the video itself. So, I tolerate poor pronunciation in a video, I would love to hear your voice. (Praying : "God.. Please make EDream's voice crappy..")

I realised how rude and offensive I came off when I said that and it didn't even come out how I was expecting...

I Live under a rock /troll.
But in all seriousness the guy in the vid might not be the fluent in english but is willing to try for he's viewers, so i can tolerate it.(Unless it is done on purpose)

I pressed no by mistake
Anyways yes, I tolerate it and incourage it the more you do it the better you become at it

Anyways if you are really that worried just practice the hard words I'm sure you can do it!

Btw editing text on the screen is really simple you won't have a problem
Unless you want to say a lot of things, then you should talk. Also get a decent mic they can be like 15$ but they break easily

I sound like an Indian.

Everyone has their own accents and stuff, so I guess it's tolerable.

I don't even know, I guess I don't. It's just hard to understand and.. idk how to explain but I'm a no.

Your poll looks kinda like you're trying to force people to anwser the first one tbh...

I would. In fact, it is an odd endearing quirk many people use to their advantage on YouTube. As long as it resembles English, is not exhaustively incomprehensible, and has a general fluency to the syllabic patterns, I frequently translate the message well.

If it's an awesome video with bad prenounciation, I won't mind much.

I love making silly polls, sorry if it looks like so. I need real answers here, not just attention seeking.

I can understand myself, but I live in a country which English isn't the main language. My friends understand whatever I'm babbling about in English, but I don't know about the outside world, y'know. That's why I'm quite pessimistic about this.

What I'll have to edit in text:
- intro
- rules of the challenge
- steps
- the plan of completing this challenge


Wait, actually... That's not that much. Except for the rules. :sweatdrop:

Oh yeah, since it's kinda on topic I thought it's time to share my deep dark secret: I absolutely HATE the British accent. I hate it so much. (sowwy britts). This also means I can't stand any YouTuber who speaks with a British accent... I just can't.

How is that even possible? The British accent is amazing.

I don't know what's wrong with you doe. It's awesome, just incomprehendible for me. Pure british accent... I can't understand what the guy is saying if he uses that.

I would say which accent I hate except that it's sorta offensive.

I like the British accent. It's music to my ears.

If you think it's bad, put subtitle, it's not that hard IMO.

Nope. Use subtitles.
Well, it actually depends, but it's always good to have text.
