      Hi RoxyMel,
      Your recording was very nice and clear. My only suggestion is to remove or reduce the pauses at the commas, and that way it can keep a good flow and pace. Nice job!

    Had a technical issue with my last post and now can’t find the post, Try Number 2. I’m doing some more homework and with the advice from my homework on August 23rd, I believe I’ve fixed some previous issues. I hope this sound more conversational and that I sound more relatable to the text. I also changed the sound and hope that it improved as well.

    Tennessee Whiskey
    Born from Appalachian mud and mist; from passed-down secrets and passed-on traditions; born from law abidin’ and law unabidin’; born from calloused hands and broken back; born from deep blue grass and rich Bluegrass; born from good people and shared with the same. Tennessee Whiskey.

    Ben & Jerry’s Freezer Fairies (for one reader)
    Hey, it’s me. The Ben & Jerry’s Freezer Fairy. That’s what I said. Ben & Jerry’s Freezer Fairy. You know some people don’t believe in Freezer Fairies. Doesn’t bother me. I know I’m here.

    So listen up. Here’s how it works. Do something good out there in the world and bang. I stick a pint or two of Ben & Jerry’s in your freezer when no one is looking.

    Now, do something bad and boom! No Ben & Jerry’s. Plus I stick something really weird in your freezer like frozen clams.
    Hey! I ain’t no lightweight fairy that tap dances on moonbeams and stuff.
    I work for a living. I got bills to pay.
    Just like you guys.
    So where was I?
    Let’s review. Do something good….
    I sneak some Ben & Jerry’s into your freezer. Maybe some Cherry Garcia.
    Or some Chunky Monkey. But do something bad….
    And no Ben & Jerry’s in YOUR freezer!
    Plus I mess with your head a little bit.
    OK, till next time. I wish you a freezer full of love and surprises.
    Be good out there.
    OR ELSE!

    Hey all! I’ve got a couple of scripts from a while ago that I tried to change up and give another go! They’re narration, and I’m a naturally fast-talker which means I really struggle with slowing myself down for these! Any feedback is welcome, but especially let me know if there’s any issues with pacing, going too fast, or not letting the script breathe. Specifically with the second one, I was trying to aim for a friendly but still instructive tone. Thanks!!

    Orton Hall-
    Welcome to the historic Orton Hall! Built in 1893, it’s like our very own Hogwarts. It is home to one of the quietest and oldest libraries on campus, as well as our own personal dinosaur.

    Air Purifier Tutorial-
    To install a new capsule into your air purifier, switch the unit “off.” Then remove the new capsule from its protective wrapping. Open the capsule cap by turning in the direction opposite to that directly indicated by the arrow on the cap. Insert the capsule in the cap until the tabs catch the cap. Insert the complete cap into the air purifier. Turn the cap in the direction of the arrow. And then switch the unit back “on.” Your air purifier will now release a pleasant fragrance during operation. Either choose “repeat” to watch this demonstration again, or it will automatically close.

      Hey Troy,

      Orton Hall I thought was actually too slow in my opinion. I could hear the breathing in between and it was choppy.

      However, the next one was perfect. I could still hear the breathing but the pace was really nice and you seemed far more connected in the script.

      Lovely Job overall. Definitely have a narrative voicing.

    I look forward to hearing what you think, the good and the bad. Please be real and give it to me straight. So grateful for your time, friends.

      All of them are very good. For the first one, however, I would show a little more urgency in my voice, but that’s just my opinion.

      I can’t seem to edit that up there, so I’d like to add that I would love any feedback and tips on recording quality too please!

        Your tone matched each one very nicely. I would say that you seem to get winded as if your trying to get all of one sentence out in one go. I have trouble doing this was advised to put pretend breath marks in. It’s not as bad in the first or the last one as it is in the middle on Tips on Basal Insulin. I also noticed a cut off in the end of the Insulin one. The Insulin one is also recorded at a higher volume? it is really boomy. I hope this helps. I really enjoyed the reads otherwise.

    Hey gang…!

    Doing a little practice these days. Since it has been a while, thought I would see how you think I am doing.

    Amendment3
    In states across America,
    Voters decide gambling issues.
    Floridians once had that power, too.
    With Amendment 3, we will again.
    Amendment 3 restores control of gambling to voters
    Not politicians
    Not gambling lobbyists
    YOU
    That’s why gambling lobbyists are spending millions falsely attacking Amendment 3
    They don’t want voters in charge
    Florida’s top newspapers agree
    Put the power in the hands of the voters
    By voting YES to Amendment 3

    Voting Record
    Election season is here.
    Remember, who you vote for is secret
    But whether you vote is public information
    Your friends, family, and neighbors can look up your voting record
    This year, whether by mail, early, or on Nov 2nd
    Be sure to Make a Plan to Vote!
    And after the election your voting record will be updated based on your participation on Nov 2nd
    So, Vote, on or by Nov 2nd.

    I know the room is in the mix a lot more than I would like, so ignore that…!

    Thanks for your time.

      These both sound quite professional to me. Your voice sounds sincere, the pace seems good and your intonations seem very appropriate. Also the music seems to accentuate nicely.

    He everyone, I just finished another round of homework and welcome any and all feedback. Thank you in advance!

    Aetna/US Healthcare
    No matter where we live–when it comes to something as important as health care–we all want the best. That’s why AETNA and US HEALTHCARE have joined forces to create a partnership that will set a new standard for quality and caring. AETNA and US HEALTHCARE. Raising the standard for your town, for your family, and for you.

    Beavers
    The b****r builds its lodge out of intertangled twigs and sticks; as freezing weather nears, they plaster their lodge with mud, making a concrete layer that no predator can break through. During the early nineteenth century, the b****r pelt was the single most valuable commodity; the pelt being used for robes, coats, clothing trims, and top hats. (FWIW, the forum automatically starred out “eave” lol)

    American Airlines
    Welcome aboard American Airlines coast-to-coast service. We’ll be happy to do everything possible to make your flight with us a most pleasurable experience. We’ll provide you with all the information you need to know about your flight, your destination, and the equipment on which you are currently flying. In addition, we are proud to present our American Airlines feature film presentation, for our transcontinental passengers. We’d like you now to remove the plastic insert found directly in front of you in the seat back pocket. Please review the safety information during the flight for your own protection, in the unlikely event of an in-flight emergency.

      Hi Christopher,
      Your voice is so nice to listen to. I enjoyed all three, but especially the American Airlines most of all. The Beavers read could probably be less announcery…I guess it would be the right tone if you are giving a guided tour of a b****r habitat, but I think it might need a different kind of tone if it was a tv documentary. Anyway, you definitely are on point with your reads.

    Hi, just uploading two scripts for feedback. Thanks in advance!

    Sandals
    Somewhere in the Caribbean, there are 5-star luxury resorts where it’s all-inclusive, all the time. Sandals, where love is all you need. Because everything else is included. Call 1-800-Sandals.

    Honey Bunches of Oats
    It’s amazing! I never thought one cereal would make my whole family stay for breakfast. HONEY BUNCHES OF OATS. There’s never been a cereal like it. With big corn flakes and crunchy bunches of oats. Finally … a cereal my whole family loves.

      nice work, Sheila. I did sense a hint of pause during the Sandals read at the 5-star luxury part that made the flow a little interrupted. The Honey Bunches read had good energy, like how you emphasized the keys components of ad.

      Hello!

      You did a great job with this! Your voice is a solid choice for this narration piece, and perhaps even a comfy audiobook.

      Everything seems well paced, as well. I’ve no complaints here. Great work!
