Janice did an incredible job and rearranged her schedule to meet our deadline (we only gave her about 3 hours to turn the job around when the typical turn around time is 24+ hrs). Vocally, Janice was the best voice out of 52 very qualified auditions. I look forward to working on the next project with her and I highly recommend that you consider her for voice over capabilities as you award your jobs.

Just to let you know what we thought of Voices.com. We advertised a job, and within a week had 22 responses. The voice which was chosen, was perfect for the job. Prices were spot on, and we had no problems with submitting payment. The only recommendation we would make to Voices.com is that the website pages are slow to load, but thats all. We will definately be back to Voices.com for further business. Thankyou Voices.com, from Universal Supplies Software.
