What is the process for a Voice Over recording?
Professional voice overs take longer than the finished programme duration, as with all TV and Radio productions – studio time is more than just the duration of the finished read or voice file. Editing takes time. We check the script, checking spelling, pronunciation using industry recognised resources and review other TV networks. We also check the length of each phrase so it fits with video timings or slide changes. We then record the voice with the text you supplied. Then check for accuracy, phrasing, correct emphasis for clear understanding of the entire message, vocal clarity, no P “pops” or clips or cut ending consonants or external noise and all with precise time editing to fit within your time settings and or video timings if supplied.
Costs, Deposit, Payment methods, Currencies
Fees are based per hour in the studio or a fixed fee. This checking of your text, checking for length if required to match video timings, a voice recording of your text. Then checks for accuracy, phrasing and clarity, and time editing to fit with your time settings and or video timings.
A deposit is required with order but no charges are made for any changes to the recording, i.e if you request changes to tone or speed or effects. Payments can be made by Paypal, bank transfer.
We do not sell email addresses or contact information and the systems in the studio are protected by firewalls and the latest antivirus technologies. Care is taken to store all data securely such as texts and embargoed press releases.
