There’s an interesting article by John Higgins on the John and Muriel Higgins Home page. The article is entitled, “I Speak Analogue, You Hear Digital” and you can find it at the following link: http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/wordscape/wordlist/analogue.html
Check out the digital speaking test and the supra-segmentals section. The latter section relates to how pausing can change the meaning of a sentence. The article contains some good practice materials.

Finished my first voice.com gig and what fun it was! It was a 15 page script for a corporate video. They wanted an announcer voice with "energy" but not "over the top". So ...

Whoever you choose, make sure it's someone who has a great deal of working experience. As with any type of class, there may be those who want to teach, and could possibly do a relatively good job, but they don't have the actual working experience to back it up. Someone who has done voice over work for years or who has directed or cast voice talent will… Continue

Moderation and balance are key!
A few weeks back I joined as the 105th or so member of the latest voiceover networking rage, I rock the mic vo!

It seems like you can't pick up a newspaper or a magazine without reading about the lagging economy. I was just curious if it has hurt anyone's business? It may seem like a silly question but I haven't seen much of a slow down in my world other than clients taking longer than usual to pay invoices. I am curious to hear your thoughts. For a lot of us who are doing well at this for a living, could you imagine the prosperity in a booming marketplace?
