What makes a good voice over talent
A good voice over talent for voice over work is one who transmits the contents without being monotone. To do so, the voice artist needs to respect the pauses, the tone, the punctuation and the coherence of the text they’re reading. Depending on the type of production, deep voices may be advisable, because they lend gravitas and a sense of security to the voice over, or higher voices, ideal for offering a fresher note to the project. The same voice over talent may use different registers to adapt to the type of video being recorded. Different types of voice over talents are used depending on whether it’s a voice over for a corporate video, a commercial voice over, a narration for documentaries, or an e-learning narration.
When making the recording, the voice over talent has to pay particular attention to making sure the narration is clear and any music is mixed in well to give the narrator centre stage. The voice over talent plays a central role in the process.

Considerations from a voice over talent
When organising a voice recording for an audiovisual production, you need to make some preparations to avoid issues or delays in the recording. The voice over talent will take into account some considerations to get the best recording quality.
One of the first things to take into account is reviewing the script and asking the client any questions concerning intonation, register, style, rhythm, etc. That way you can avoid later changes that would also add production costs.
It’s important to measure the times and the length of the text. You have to determine whether the text to be read can be narrated effectively in the predetermined amount of time. In this case, the voice over talent can adapt the speed of the reading to the text provided. However, you have to be careful not to lose the expressiveness and the tone, which may suffer in quality. In these cases, it’s preferable to cut part of the text or summarize the message to provide more time for the voice over talent.
Voice over talents for documentaries
The documentary genre is one of the most attractive work prospects for voice over talent, because the narration takes a central role in the transmission of content. The voice over talent may be the messenger delivering the experiences, the reflections, or the discoveries that are expressed. So it’s of fundamental importance to have the right registers in these cases.
That’s why documentary producers go through a careful selection process to choose those voice over talents who most faithfully communicate the different sensations and experiences. This selection process begins the voice over recording process that can take months, as the different chapters are edited.
Voice over talents for educational projects
Another interesting facet of audiovisual projects are those designed to be educational or e-learning material. Audio recordings, videos, or multimedia training material are some of the formats for transmitting educational content using a professional voice over talent.
Today, different communication formats are used in e-learning education to bring content both to students and to teachers. Some examples include audio recordings for textbooks, both in Spanish and other languages, or the production of educational videos suitable for syllabuses, among other materials. In each of these, voice over talent becomes a fundamental tool. The materials produced for educational publishers today are innumerable: audio CDs, short films, original songs and covers, audio books, etc.
