Voice recording is a science and an art. The science part is easy (it’s all about audio engineering), but the artistic part requires a bit more effort. The goal is to produce a quality voice recording that’s near perfect without sounding fake or over-produced.
A voiceover is a narration, dialogue, or commentary that is recorded separately from the video and added to the final film or presentation. It’s commonly used in film, television, documentaries, commercials, radio, and video games to add additional information or context, or to express thoughts that weren’t captured on-camera. There are two main types of voiceovers: narration and non-narration. Narration voiceovers describe what is happening in a video, while non-narration voiceovers are often instructional and educational. Regardless of the type of voiceover, there are some basic principles to keep in mind: audio clarity, pacing, vocal tone and inflection, and proper pronunciation.
The first step to recording a great voiceover is to read the script carefully before you record. This will prevent you from stuttering, adding filler words or forgetting your lines. It will also help you determine how fast or slow you should speak to maintain a natural pace. It’s also a good idea to practice reading the script aloud to get an idea of how it will sound when recorded. Finally, make sure you’re in a quiet place with decent acoustics and no distractions. If possible, avoid using a microphone that is too close to your mouth as this will increase noise and cause feedback. How to do do voiceovers
