New Tricks to Keep going.

The Covid Month....so far.

Apr 18, 2020 by Contributor - Voice Articles

We've all had to jump online and learn a lot of new tricks. We've had to become teachers to our kids, videoconferencing stars at work and generally keep the show on the road.  It feels unrelenting. Here are a few voice suggestions to keep you sane. 1.Keep breathing. 2.Adjust your computer height so you are looking at it at eye level, thus avoiding neck strain and letting your voice flow out smoothly. 3. Test and adjust your mic volume so you don't need to speak too loudly. 4. Sip warm lemon and honey water intermittently. 5. Rest....a lot more.

Let's hear it for the Metro!

Announcer Train-ing

Feb 18, 2020 by Contributor - Voice Articles

We've been busy designing and presenting a great course for the brand new Sydney Metro. Their busy controllers and staff needed some professional guidance on how to deliver excellent messages, so we showed them how to do it! Now all they need is for the equipment they announce through to be tweeked a little bit further, so that their well structured messages can be more easily heard in those sleek metro trains and beautiful new stations.

 Jan 11, 2020 by Contributor - Voice Articles

It's the year that started with mega-challenge for our clients and staff in Australia. Fire, smoke, loss of life....human,flora and fauna.

Recording for Good

Impressive Lillian Leigh

We have just had the priviledge of working with Lillian on her personal presenting and recording style.

There is so much more to her story. A brave and beautiful woman, being of service to others. You make us proud.

It's all in the Motion

The Motion Capture Advantage

Jul 18, 2019 by Contributor - Voice Articles

We had a very interesting assignment this month helping with a motion capture project. With motion capture you need to make your face move so that all the dots line up for the many cameras that are simultaneously filming you. Speakers need to remember to move their mouths and relax. Pretty stressful in an odd environment that's for sure. Our reassuring coach helped put the candidate at ease and give a great natural performance.

The Neutral Voice

To Sir (Siri) with love

Apr 11, 2019 by Contributor - Voice Articles

Move over Siri or should we say move over Sir! A virtual voice has been created to do away with the gender steryotype of the virtual assistant.The new voice of "Q" was created to sound like neither a man nor woman. Interesting. However we think all voices have merit and can be used in many different ways. AI...Are we going too far?
