When I read I hear the text spoken in my head. Lots of different voices. As we know how writers sound now, most books are read in my head by the author. On here FE sounds like Hal. who does he sound like to you?
When I first joined this forum, I always assumed that the FE looked like a typical computer boffin, something like that little fat bloke in Little Britain, spectacles and all. How very wrong I was. More like a rugby player for dear old England or perhaps Wales.
Going back to the original question. 'What do you hear'. Tinnitus mainly :O(
I'm told I have a "Southern counties" voice,with a touch of Estuary England. Not cut-glass posh, but not typically 'London' either. Those who have a particularly keen ear say they detect a whiff of my Welsh blood in there somewhere too, but I think they're imagining it.
My wife says I sound sexy on the phone, but we won't go there - our private life is our own affair.
As for hearing text in your head, I find that deeply interesting. I don't think I 'hear' anything when I read, but now that you've made me think about it I think I probably do without realising it. I imagine that men read with a male 'voice' in the head, and women hear a female one. Let's see if some of our female members bear that out.
