It must also be taken into consideration that while speaking on telephone, mobile, or through computer, the other person is unable to see what your body language is and therefore, this makes the tone of your voice a major contributor while communicating.

The tone of voice expresses what you are thinking, how you are feeling, and what values you have within, so it is not something to be taken lightly.
