The power of professional narration voice over to deliver your message
Narration is much more than simply a voice reading a script. There are several important purposes that the narrator’s voice has to serve in order for the message to be effectively communicated to an audience. An experienced voice actor will understand the power of voice over and know how to use the qualities in their voice to achieve these goals. Let’s take a look at a few of the key aspects of effective narration voice over.
(1) The voice over needs to engage the audience:
The reality of today’s world is that the target audience for your video, broadcast, or program has many sources of information competing for their attention at any given moment. This is why it’s very important to have your narrator’s voice be able to grab the audience’s attention and keep them engaged throughout the entire piece.
How can a narration voice actor achieve this? While there are many approaches, successful voice talent will be able to use the energy level, emotions, and pacing of their speech to create dynamic and compelling narration. For example, e-learning videos usually need to deliver highly technical information, in order to instruct consumers on how to use a product, tell patients or doctors about a new medical device or procedure, or provide employees with an update on company policies. In all of these cases, the narrator might maintain the audience’s attention by using an upbeat and energetic tone, modulating their vocal pitch, or speaking quickly in order to dissuade the listener from becoming distracted.
(2) The voice over needs to clearly communicate the message:
While there may be visual elements, music, or sound effects that accompany a narration, it is the voice over that is often the most critical component in reaching an audience and having the desired effect. The voice over needs to be clear, easy to understand, and consistently match the tone and mood of the web video or broadcast. In other words, the narrator’s voice needs to be well-suited to the content or topic at hand.
How can a voice actor tailor their voice to a specific project? The right voice actor will know how to match their vocal qualities and tone to the needs of the narration. For example, corporate narration might require a bold, authoritative tone to fit the formal nature of the content. On the other hand, a web video explaining the benefits of a product or service might need friendly, uplifting voice over to get the audience excited about the topic. No matter what the intended message is, the narrator needs to skillfully deliver the lines of the script in order to convey the right meaning and achieve the desired impact on the audience.
