A ‘revision’ is a change to an audio recording requested by a client during the course of a project. Often referred to as an ‘edit’, a revision typically take the form of script changes, and can be requested for a variety of reasons:
- Changes to the client's project scope or objectives
- Feedback on an audio take, read or script delivery
- The need for additional takes or reads of the same line with different delivery
Determining how much to charge for a revision as part of your proposal is dependent on a variety of factors. While there is no set or suggested amounts, there are a number of things to consider when creating your voice over quote . We also suggest that you stand by your own pricing structure.
When auditioning for a job, you have the option of including a revision policy before submitting your full proposal.
Performance Mistakes: Mispronunciations or missing words are fixed at no charge.
Artistic Edits: One round of feedback concerning pacing or tone is included at no charge. I typically charge [$X] for each round afterwards.
Script Rewrites: One round of rewrites, that are less than 10% of the final script, is included at no charge. Additional rounds typically cost [$X for each round afterwards or X% of the original budget]. Rewrites beyond 10% will be quoted upon request.

If, after submitting a proposal, you’d like to change your revision policy, you can do so by editing your proposal. Please note, that you can only edit this proposal before being hired for the job and while the job is still in a ‘HIRING’ or ‘DECIDING’ phase, up to a maximum of three times.
From there, you can click the ‘Create Template’ button and input a Template Name, and then your templated Proposal and Revision Policies. When creating a new template, both the You Proposal and Your Revision Policy fields will be populated with default copy. This copy can be used as a frame of reference to write your own Proposal and Revision Policy, or it can be deleted for you to write your own from scratch. Once you are happy with your Template, click ‘Save’ to save it for use in future auditions. For more information on how to create a Template, read the “How do I create a proposal template ” article.
