Whether you’re an instructional designer who’s been tasked with writing an elearning script for a client, or you’re a business considering elearning as a training solution, these sample scripts will give you the inspiration you need to get started on your elearning script writing.

For Clients Looking for Voice Over Script Examples

The scripts include specifications like voice age, gender, job description, target market, style, etc., all of which can be useful to include in a voice over job posting on Voices.com. So (if you’re looking for a voice actor), the next time you post a job on Voices.com, 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.

For Voice Actors Looking for Voice Over Practice Scripts

These scripts are great for practice. You can even use them as scripts for your online demos!

However, keep in mind that when auditioning for jobs, it is recommended to only provide a small portion of the read in your audition. For example, 10 to 20 seconds of a minute-long read will suffice for your submission.

1-Minute Elearning Voice Over Sample Script

In this module, we will discuss what to do if you come across an unattended mobile mover. A mobile mover is an assistive device used to carry heavy objects from point A to point B.

This vehicle must be operated by a qualified driver, or, if in automatic mode, must be supervised at all times. If you see a mobile mover unattended on the floor, immediately check your surroundings to ensure that there are no other people in the direct path.

Then, proceed to walk to the back of the mobile mover and initiate the shut off valve. The shut off valve is located on the passenger side of the mobile mover.

Be sure to notify your supervisor of the unattended mobile mover and log it in the log book.
