Pitch Glide or Glissando: finding relationship between pitch and physical sensations
Finding your natural pitch is one of the tasks when discovering your natural voice.

What matters for simultaneous interpretation is that you feel on the physical level when your voice is high and when it is low for pitch and the change in that physical sensation for intonation. In the booth, with your headset on, you will not be able to hear yourself properly, so you should rely more on this physical sensation than on your own hearing.
