Job Description

General Overview

Provide voice-over for four tutorials for a software application used to measure the ability to hear in noisy situations. Two tutorials are about 7½ minutes of voice-over time and two are about 5 minutes of voice-over time.

The voice-over of the tutorials will be closely linked to the video (e.g. “Click on the Record button”), however I will be synchronizing the voice with the video in video editing, so the voice-over just needs to be evenly paced.

Voice-Over Tutorials

-QuickSIN – List Selection (707 words). Approximately 5 minutes of voice-over. Rough draft of video/audio:

-BKB-SIN – List Selection (823 words). 97% similar to “QuickSIN – List Selection”. Approximately 5 minutes of voice-over.

-QuickSIN – Administering the Test (1113 words). Approximately 7½ minutes of voice-over. Rough draft video/audio:

-BKB-SIN – Administering the Test (1195 words). 97% similar to “QuickSIN – Administering a Test”. Approximately 7½ minutes of voice-over.


Owners of the Speech-In-Noise Reporter. Hearing health providers tend to be impatient medical types and tend to be rigid in using medical terminology rather than plain English.


The voice-over should be smooth, confident, and conversational. The voice cannot be too deep (i.e. low frequency). Conceptually, it’s as though the voice-over speaker is sitting next to the viewer and showing them how to use the program.


-The scripts have changed since the rough draft videos

-SNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio) is spelled out (S-N-R)

-TDH is spelled out (T-D-H)

-QuickSIN is said like a word (“quicksin”)

-BKB-SIN is said in combination (“B-K-B-sin”)

-White space/blank lines in the script should have about a 1 second pause
