Become a Voice Talent

May 19 / 11:30 am - 2:30 pm EDT

Increase your competitive advantage by adding voice recording services!

As the language industry landscape continues to evolve, diversification is becoming even more relevant to a successful business. One excellent opportunity for those language professionals looking to expand their services in a new direction has been created by the growing demand for multilingual voice recording.

Join us for this highly dynamic virtual workshop where you’ll learn about the different market segments for voice recording and how to acquire the necessary skills to offer this service to clients.

During three hours of focused learning, this workshop will cover effective speaking, breathing, pauses, tone of voice, and what equipment and tools are needed for a successful audio-recording session. Attendees will also receive real-time feedback on reading exercises for different markets!

You will learn how to:

  1. Use sound hardware and software for successful audio-recording sessions
  2. Identify the market demand for your type of voice and style
  3. Prepare yourself to record voice samples
  4. Reach out to clients to offer your voice-over services
  5. How to charge for voice-over work

  • Participants have an option to submit their own recordings ahead of time, whether anonymous or not, for real-time feedback during the session.
  • We encourage everyone to connect with their video and audio on and to actively participate in the workshop discussions.
