Useful Tips

A few tips you should know to make sure you get exactly the voice over that you want.

Be Clear About What You Want
Let us know exactly how you’d like us to sound: casual, business, fun, etc. Send us links on examples of what you’re looking for.

Provide Pronunciations
If you have any names, brand names, or industry specific terms in your script, please let us know how to pronounce them. Remember, it may seem obvious to you, but it might not to us. Also, if you use an acronym in your script, like “CAT”, let us know if we should pronounce it “cat” or “C.A.T.”

Scripts
Send scripts in TXT, DOC, DOCX or PDF files only. Make sure you review your script because each edit on my end will cost you extra.

Unfortunately, scripts with a lot of technical terminology or medical jargon is something I would rather NOT work on.

WAV or MP3?
It’s common not to know which file format is right for your needs. WAV files (16-bit; 44 KHz) are a much larger, uncompressed file and MP3s (256 Kbps) are a compressed and smaller file. MP3s are great if you have a size constraint on your video. The smaller the video size, the faster it loads!

Background Music
Due to copyright issues and the cost of royalty free music, you will have to provide it. I will not be legally responsible for any copyright infringement if the music you sent is questionable.

Word Count
To count words in your script or document using newer versions of MS Word: 
  1. Open MS Word application
  2. Locate & open your document
  3. Click on Review
  4. Select & click Word Count
On older versions of MS Word:
  1. Open MS Word application
  2. Locate & open your document
  3. Click on Tools
  4. Select & click Word Count
NOTE:
If your document has a domain name (YourName.com) in it, this will be counted as 2 words.
