The above link takes you to a Gutenberg book which has tips on how to speak, train voice and deliver good speech. Probably written before the advent of the microphone but nevertheless will still apply.

Hope it is useful.

“It’s alright having a voice, but you should do something with it. Like LOSE it ... or get it trained.”

That's a very interesting piece. The whole book looks very interesting although The Race Question by Paul Laurence Dunbar is probably no longer quite the after-dinner hit it once was.
