For answers to some frequently asked questions about my voiceover services, see below.

What are “rights”?2021-12-31T20:00:42+00:00

When you order a voice recording, you also need to order permission to use the recording how you want to use it.

These permissions are called “rights.”

I offer some rights for free, others for a fee. Whether you need to purchase rights simply depends on how you want to use the recording.

What rights do you offer?2022-01-11T11:51:38+00:00

Unless otherwise specified, my recordings are works for hire for personal, business, and online use.

These rights are free. However, they do not cover broadcast advertising use.

If the recording is for broadcast advertising purposes, you will need to purchase appropriate broadcast advertising rights.

Broadcast Advertising Rights

After purchasing appropriate broadcast advertising rights, you may use my recordings in advertising broadcast over “traditional” (aka terrestrial) radio or TV.

Here are the broadcast advertising rights I offer:

Radio Rights – You may use this recording in advertising on terrestrial radio. (For advertising on Internet radio or on podcasts, that is covered under online use, so you don’t need Radio Rights for Internet radio or podcast advertising.)

TV Rights (Local/Regional vs. National)- You may use this recording in advertising on terrestrial television, depending on the breadth of the market. I offer different rights for advertising in local/regional TV and for national TV.


What do you deliver?2022-01-11T11:42:06+00:00

I deliver my recordings as mixed and mastered mp3 files.

When ordering, you can also request a mixed and mastered wav file, or a raw (dry) wav file for your own mixing and mastering.

If you need another filetype, simply let me know what you need and I should be able to accommodate.


For audiobooks, I provided mp3 files mixed and mastered to meet ACX standards.

Are you awesome?2021-07-08T19:25:32+00:00

Yep, I’m awesome!

What is your accent?2021-07-08T19:25:32+00:00

I have an American accent.

My general accent is Midwestern, very close to Standard American Broadcasting English. My voice works great for recordings where you want no regionalism in the voice.

My voice also reads as Mid-Atlantic or simply “generic American English.”

I don’t record other accents than my own.

I need a voiceover in 1-2 hours. Can you do that?2020-03-24T00:23:16+00:00

Sometimes I can! Contact me to see if I’m available.

Do you do precision timing? For example, synching to video, dubbing, or recordings that are exactly 60 seconds?2022-01-11T11:44:30+00:00

Precision timing is whenever I have to meet certain time constraints in my recording.

Examples of precision timing include:

  • synching my voice to a video
  • dubbing my voice over another person’s voice
  • recording to a specific time length (like 15 seconds, 30 seconds, exactly 53 seconds, etc.)
  • recording within scripted timestamps

Precision timing takes a bit more time and work to record and deliver, so I offer it at a higher rate than for standard recording.

What is your Modification Policy?2022-01-11T12:11:06+00:00

For discount voiceovers, modifications are at cost.  Order here if you need a round of modifications for a discount voiceover.

For premium voiceovers, most include a reasonable number of modifications within a specified time window after my first delivery at no additional cost. An exceptional number of modifications, modifications requested after this time window, and new scripting that may increase word count may be at additional cost.

If you are an agency or designer working on behalf of a client: Make sure your client knows that modifications may be at cost, and build modification costs into your rate and budget.

Of course, if I made a rare mistake, I’ll correct it for free!

Do you offer live directed sessions?2022-01-11T11:46:03+00:00

Live directed sessions are when I patch you into my recording studio, and you can direct me live as I record for you.

Subject to scheduling and for an additional fee, I can provide live directed sessions over the Chrome web browser.

What is your Pronunciation Policy?2022-01-11T12:07:10+00:00

When you send pronunciations for unusual words, names, or abbreviations/acronyms, you really speed up my delivery time!

Here are some recommended ways to send me any unusual pronunciations:

  • Send me an audio file of the correct pronunciation (BEST OPTION!) 
  • Send a link to a YouTube video with the correct pronunciation
  • Send a link to an online dictionary entry, like from merriam-webster.com
  • Write out what what any words rhyme with (not recommended)
  • Write out the pronunciation phonetically (not recommended)

If you don’t provide pronunciation guidance, and if after deliver I need to change my pronunciation, that counts as a modification.

See my Modification Policy (above) for details.

What is your Refund Policy?2021-12-31T21:15:16+00:00

In general, I do not provide refunds for my voiceover work. But never fear! I have a long history of customers around the globe ecstatic with my voiceover services.

If you are an agency or designer working on behalf of a client, make sure your client knows that modifications may be at cost, and build modification costs into your rate and budget.

What WON’T you record?2021-12-31T21:15:06+00:00

I will not record divisive political ads, robocalls, ringless voicemail, racist or sexist content, or certain other material.

Contact me with any questions before ordering.
