I have attended only a few events, and thus only a few courts, but I've
never had a problem hearing or understanding the heralds.  I *have* had a
problem hearing the royals, however.  I realize that shouting at the
person(s) receiving awards or honors would be graceless and uncomfortable,
but if the person being honored would keep a small distance between
him/herself and the Crown, then His/Her Majesty could praise that person
clearly, loud enough for all to hear and be impressed <g>, then when HRM
approached to present the award itself, he/she could utter a few quiet words
of appreciation to the recipient.

I encourage anyone who is able to take advantage of Corun's offer of vocal
instruction --- you will find it invaluable both in *and* out of the SCA!  :-)
