    These are scripts intended for children audiences. I would appreciate any performance-related feedback! Also, if you have a preference between the two “Lemur” options, let me know. Thanks!

      Hi Suecat –
      Welcome to the forum! I couldn’t listen to these easily as they were exported in an .m4a vs an .mp3. I’m thinking that’s why you don’t have any feedback.
      Kashi Read: Your enunciation and tone of the read are great. When you say “must there be h**l in a heavenly…” line, I think you may want to make sure that you think about the purpose of the line and what you are trying to envoke from the person you are speaking to. Love the ending – great way to keep us interested.
      Chewy Read: Make sure to know who you are speaking to. This felt more like you were reading it to me then telling me something about Chewy. I know our coaches tell us all the time, but picture that person you are trying to talk to and let that help inform your pitch and tone.

      Good luck to you! Looking forward to hearing more!
      -Amber

      You sounded great for both of the reads, pro voice and sound! I really liked your enthusiasm and inflection for “Great Courses”, for “Dry Fly” maybe adding more energy to some of the key words so that its more clear about the audience its targeting, “fly fisherman”, “blue ribbon trout streams”.

      I was completely hooked on the first commercial, very good diction nonetheless. For the second commercial, I don’t know if the pace was the best, perhaps going fas was something you were achieving? It felt a little bit rushed for me and I was a little bit overwhelmed.

      Hi Shmuel! I enjoyed both commercials. the first commercial I felt like I was on an open field with a lake in front of me. may sound weird but truly liked it. I also liked the second commercial. the second commercial there were some areas I though the words were stressed long (daaaay, Sciencccce) maybe that’s what you were going for so I could be wrong. overall both were great.

        Hi Chad, I still could only hear a small amount of your voice, not sure if its’ my computer or your file. I did like the sound of your voice from what I could manage to hear, sounded like a great fit for that type of commercial. I’ve been recently recording/exporting files on Audacity, you can download it for free 🙂

    • #66858

      Hi Chad, I had trouble with downloading and hearing your recording. Maybe try download it as an MP3 file..Welcome to the forum!

      I hear an echo in all the reads.
      Beer can – vary the energy like you did with Pepsi.
      Cadillac – you need a more luxurious and or take-charge read, GET OUT OF THE WAY !!!
      Pepsi – ohmygawd you are perfect for this. I would consider embracing the quirky, cutesy type of commercials. Done right, they are a lot of fun, and can get get a lot of attention. It fits your personality.
      With you success !

      • #66905

        Thank you so much for your feedback/help, glad you liked the Pepsi recording! I’ve been struggling with the Cadillac recording and will work on a more take charge read…thanks again!

      I like these! For the second one, I would give more contrast between “others talk about it…” and “we make cards…” just to make it stand out and pop out more.

      • #66906

        Thanks so much! I appreciate your suggestions for the second recording too~

      I enjoyed hearing each of the scripts. Each of them I enjoyed the energy you brought to the scripts. the last commercial I truly felt and laughed because I think we have all been there. 🙂 great job on each recording.

    First time with medical narration. Would welcome any feedback. Thanks, Steve.

    A guidewire is inserted into the femoral artery up through the iliac artery and into the contra-lateral iliac artery. Module one delivery system is inserted through the femoral artery. It slides over the guidewire and is positioned between the two iliac arteries. Using radio pake markers, the delivery system is positioned so that the gateway is facing the aortic trunk during deployment. As the operator retracts the outer sheath, module one begins to deploy. The guidewire is pulled back and then pushed forward through the gateway of module one. Module two slides over the guidewire and is correctly aligned with the gateway. The outer sheath is retracted and module two expands. Module two hourglass waist is now securely coupled inside the gateway of the first module. Module three is inserted and aligned so that the fabric begins just below the lower renal artery. Outward protruding barbs assist in fixing module three in place.

      Nailed it. Sound great, enunciation great, pace great. After listening to this, I’m sure I can pass my medical boards thanks to you.

    A boy comes running up, and he asks, “What exactly is the ocean? What is the sea?”
    You could hit him with a lot of statistics and Latin names, but the answer isn’t something you’ll find in a book. To really know what the ocean is, you have to see it for yourself. And hear it. And taste it. You have to feel its power.

      I liked the richness/tone of your voice and great emotion in the the ocean recording, it made want to be there too. Perhaps for the medical narration maybe add a little more inflection on key words, also your sound was great for both of the recordings.

      I thought all three of your narrations were clear — well done! It sounded as if you might have been expressing a smile along with the “welcome” statement in the final narration, which matched the tone of a welcome message.

      Mara, you have a very pleasant voice that I can hear doing these sorts of scripts. I think you could speed up the tempo a little on all three scripts without losing the listener. I think, too, if you took the tonality of the third script and applied it to the first two Delta scripts, it would a little more like you’re talking to the listener. Nice work.

      Hi Steve! You sound great, very clear and the recording sounded pro. I would just add a bit more chocolatey sweetness to highlight certain parts maybe to add a little more differentiation. Awesome job!
