Hugh Barford



Rich and smooth, cool and sexy - perfect for commercial, documentary and corporate reads. Hugh is a UK English voice talent with a crisp, clear British 'BBC' accent that he can readily modify to encompass regional accent varieties and Italian, Scottish, French, German, Australian and American character voices. Hugh has recorded a wide range of radio and TV commercials and documentaries and is also much in demand for e-learning/corporate projects, for which he can employ any style required - from authoritative and compelling to relaxed and engaging. Hugh's excellent sight-reading skills make him an ideal choice for high-volume projects.

At Intuition we've built up a very successful long-term relationship with Hugh. Whether he's providing fully post-produced audio from his own facility or he's recording from commercial studios in Dublin, he invariably delivers top-quality voiceovers with the minimum of fuss - and at a price that is right for us. As a project manager I find it great to work with an experienced VO who really understands the e-learning business.
