Things to think about as you think about voiceover work – Loudness

You wouldn’t think that this would be an issue, but how loud or soft you speak can hinder your ability to do voiceover work, especially if you don’t know when you are speaking too loudly or too softly.

Yes, we use a microphone, so you don’t have to shout, but knowing how to work the mic to your advantage takes knowing how you are projecting.

Part 6 – Loudness

Ask yourself a couple of questions.

Do people ask you to speak up?

Do people hold the telephone away from their heads when you call them? Or back away from you during a face-to-face conversation?

Do they tell you to “shush” because everyone in the theater is glaring at you?

Well, then you need to give some thought to learning how to control your volume. No matter how clearly you articulate or how beautiful a voice you have, it is wasted if no one can hear you.
