Voice of the People: Randi Miller

Please welcome Randi Miller to the Metro system. She’ll be joining riders each and every day as the dulcet tones of the overhead speaker when those pesky tourists get caught in the door. You can hear her voice here. Deeeeelicious.

Miller may have only received 9.1% of the Washington Post Poll‘s vote, but she was Metro’s favorite. Randi is 44, works in the auto industry, and loves long walks on the beach and puppies.

    I’m a fan, although I liked that Howell guy b/c he was nice a grandpa-sounding.

    Here’s hoping that WMATA did a more complete job than they often do and tested these voices in noisy and busy environments. My understanding is that female voices typically work better in such situations and are more prone to be understood (is there an audiologist in the house?) and I would have thought that one of the higher-pitched voices would have been a better pick…

    Those higher-pitched female voices sounded a little too frantic. It would have taken years off my life hearing a voice like that every time a door opened and closed on an ordinary train tride. I like the choice.

    Ms. Miller presented herself as overtly genderless. Shorter than fashionable cropped hair, ear jewelry on just the right side, and a color choice for the shirt was that not so feminine shade of purple. What’s that about?
