We adopted our classification system from the AA-EVP. We’ve modified portions of it to relate to our own experiences when dealing with Electronic Voice Phenomenon.
A clear and distinct voice or sound that is universally accepted and undisputed, because it must be understood by anyone with normal hearing and without being told or prompted to what is being said or heard. It can be heard without the use of headphones
A voice or sound that is distinct and fairly loud. This class of voice is more common and can be heard by most people after being told what to listen for. It is usually audible to experienced persons who have learned the skill of listening to EVP. It can sometimes be heard without the use of headphones.
A faint and whispery voice or sound that can barely be heard and is sometimes indecipherable and unintelligible. It may have paranormal characteristics, such as a mechanical sound. Most investigators would apply objectivity and disregard it, but may save it for reference purposes.
The PPS have noticed a few common factors during E.V.P. recordings.
1. Many, though not all, E.V.P.’s sound as if they’re a recorded recording. This best way we can describe it is as if listening to an old time radio.
2. Most E.V.P.’s are short and often times one word.
3. E.V.P voices captured by our team have been recorded with a variety of styles. We’ve heard male, female, child, even mechnical like though still human voices. We’ve even recorded anomalous sounds.
4. The best E.V.P.’s are captured when you know a ghost is present. This is obvious but when you know it’s there start asking questions!
5. The best E.V.P.’s captured by our team have been during stormy weather and/or a high geomagnetic field.
