Find the Right Voice for eLearning

In our increasingly digital world, education no longer only resides in a classroom. Anyone can learn almost anything they desire from any spot in the world. Whether that be on a patio in Paris or a beach in Bali.

That being said, as far as eLearning can reach, it also brings its own unique set of challenges to the table. According to Elinor Hamilton, Managing Director of eLearning Voices, finding the right voice to record content is one such challenge. Hamilton and Ed Gardner, Head of Business Operations for eLearning Voices, outlined how you can get there.

When it comes to finding the perfect fit, Hamilton expressed that there are a few qualities to look for in a voice artist. “I think there’s got to be a lot of clarity within the voice, but also what a lot of people don’t realize is that the voice needs to be intelligent, because they need to really understand a lot of complex material,” Hamilton said.

She went onto explain that the voice talent actually understanding the material they are reading is of the utmost importance. For example, Hamilton works in pharmaceutical narration, topics of which can have health and safety impacts. “And a lot of this material is, it really is life and death if you get it wrong. And so you have to have a level of intelligence that, you know, not everybody has or a certain level of education…It’s got to be somebody that can really take the script and interpret it in the correct way and make it sound like they know what they’re talking about,” Hamilton noted. At the end of the day, having a nice voice just won’t get the job done.
