Real Life Scenario-1: Common Hurdles While Using Your OWN Voice to do the Voice-Over/Voice-Acting

To produce a high-quality Voice-over/Voice-Acting you must have:

  • A quiet place, which may be hard to manage during the day time, if you are living in a crowded area, because external noises of bike, car horns, street hawkers, dogs barking, kids playing in the neighborhood are all out of our control.
  • Sound Proofing, You may minimize the noise up to a level by making the room soundproof.

But then you may have to deal with noises that exist under your room:

  • It can be a noise coming from the fan of your laptop or an AC or a Ceiling Fan in the background.
  • Then you need a good microphone so that you can deliver the voice with a good amount of quality.

Above all, you need a crisp consistent voice:

  • This means if your throat is not well on a given day then all of the above will not be of much of use, and setting all of this up can cost you 100s of dollars.
