Tim wrote to us asking for opinions (feel free to share yours below) regarding a photo and paranormal activity.  His story and photos are included below.

I've added a green rectangular box around the brown mass that appears on the stairs.  It appears that the person is holding the handrail and is wearing something on his head (i.e. hat).

EVPs in a Foreign Language & Photos of Orb-Like Streaks

Several people have asked me about EVP's in foreign languages.  David writes:

"I've captured an EVP that sounds like the person is speaking in a foreign language.  The land was previously occupied by Native American tribes.  Can EVP's appear in a foreign language?

Yes, EVP's can appear in any language.  Normally, the EVP will appear in the language that the spirit spoke during his lifetime.  For instance, if you travel to France, most of the EVP's will be in French.  Likewise, if you live in Brazil, most of the EVP's will be in Portuguese.  Cris, a new ghost hunter from Brazil, has captured two EVP's in Portuguese. Cris also has an interesting photo with images that appear to be moving orbs—along with a strange streak across the wall.  Cris writes:

Recording EVP on your MP3 Player?

mp3player_evp.JPGBrandon asks whether he can use the built-in recorder on his MP3 player to capture EVP.

Yes.  Anything that records voice—including digital cameras, tape recorders, answering machines, and video cameras—can capture EVP.  Of course some devices will produce better quality sound than others.  For instance, an answering machine will generally produce lower-quality audio than a digital voice recorder.

Muffled versus Clear EVP's – Subscriber Question

870764_dusk_1.jpgGeoffrey submitted an interesting question about EVP's.  He writes…

"How come when I see EVP tapings on TV they are scratchy, [and] muffled sounding. I got 2 in a cabin in Lucerne Valley. Both were clear as a bell, loud and obscene. Calling me a $@#%! freak, then made growling sounds. After the first one, I slept on my girlfriend's living room floor for a week.  Again, why would these ones record so clear—they sounded as if this guy was directly behind me."
