The scripts include specifications like voice age, gender, target market, artistic direction, accent, etc., much like voice over job postings on Voices. So, if you’re looking for a voice actor, the next time you post a job on Voices, you’ll have an idea of how to format your job posting in order to get the best auditions back. This formatting helps voice actors to better understand the vision you have for your project, and bring it to life in their read.

Feel free to use these scripts for practice reads and demos! Keep in mind that, when auditioning for jobs, it is recommended to only provide a small portion of the read. For example, a 5 to 7-second read of a 15-second script will suffice for your audition.

I may have done the first one of these in the U.S. in 1975, in Denver, for a siding firm. Every question could be answered, Yes or Yes. So, in the end people either bought siding or they hung up.
Now, it’s a thing.

I copied and pasted the following three sentences from the info above. However, when attempting to find where to do what is suggested, I struck out.

Hi Linda Lee,

Thanks, for these samplers. Very much interested in re-entering the Multimedia field as Voice-Talent.
How can I break into the voice acting industry? I have no experience and limited studio equipment. What should I focus on to land my first audition? Investing in equipment before I land a part doesn’t seem logical. Also, I believe I am good with my voice, even though I have only used it to read on podium at church and over the phone as a Customer Service Representative. Should I list those as past clients?
This is a tough one because, while it doesn’t seem logical to invest in equipment, the high quality recordings clients expect can’t be captured on your cell phone, for instance. So, not that you need to invest heavily in equipment, but we do suggest getting yourself an entry level mic like a USB mic as well as become comfortable with editing audio recordings in a production software (Called a DAW—stands for Digital Audio Workspace) so that you can edit out some of the imperfections in the recordings. There are a few free DAWs out there that are easy to get started with, you can read about them here.
The church and customer service rep settings offer some really great experience with getting the gitters out! They wouldn’t necessarily be clients. Continue to use those moments to practice your voice over skills for sure, though! You can also begin to listen to the vocal qualities of every radio and tv commercial you hear, too!
Lastly, play around with some sample scripts. Give them a read through, record yourself and listen back on how you sound, and try to learn about your vocal qualities so that when you set up your Voices profile you know whether or not you have a warm and friendly voice, or an instructional and informational tone, for instance.
