Professional eLearning Voiceover
All of us are learning something new every day. eLearning voiceover is a large part of how we consume learning material in the modern age. Whether it is in the education sector, the workplace, or consumer level. And the environment in which we absorb this information continues to change. Long gone are the days of the slide projector, film strips, and the clatter of a film reel on the spool of a projector. eLearning voiceover requires a sound that is trustworthy and approachable. It needs to be delivered by someone knowledgeable about the subject matter. Often referred to as a Subject Matter Expert (SME).
Now, more than ever, the media used in providing this path to learning must immediately grip the attention span. An essential part of that performance is the use of a credible voice actor.

The Use of eLearning is Growing by Leaps and Bounds
It is estimated that eLearning is currently a $35 billion industry, and by 2025, it will explode to nearly $325 billion. eLearning voiceover is not just having a talent read your PowerPoint presentation. For something critical to the success of your organization, the voice-over must be personable and initiate a connection with the learner.
There are many types of media platforms that fall under the eLearning umbrella. Some of these include:
VR (Virtual Reality): A fully immersive, computer-simulated environment that gives you the feeling of being in that environment instead of the one you are actually in. A headset is often used to project realistic 3-D images. Tactile feedback allows user interaction as well. A voice-over will also be used to guide the viewer to different areas of the VR program.
AI (Artificial Intelligence): Interaction that occurs with AI is created by computer systems that function intelligently and independently, performing tasks that would typically be done by humans. For instance, when you interact with your mobile phone to get directions or find a restaurant.
AR (Augmented Reality): This allows the overlay of digital or virtual images and sounds into a real-world environment. For example, when you use face recognition in a camera, augmented reality can then add images to that face.
Micro-Learning: A form of learning which delivers targeted, single-concept lessons to employees within their workflows so they may naturally learn new behaviors over time.
The one common requirement for each of these platforms is the use of professional voice talent to guide the participant through each segment of the process.
We Must Remain Teachable to Reach our Full Potential
Remaining teachable is admitting to ourselves that we don’t know everything. Most of us don’t know what we don’t know. It’s been suggested we should never stumble over the same stone twice. In other words, it is acceptable to allow yourself to make mistakes, but if we learn and gain knowledge from them, we will avoid another occurrence.
Exposing yourself to new experiences, new ideas and new information will energize your ambition for personal growth and improvement. Teachable people take advantage of these opportunities. Being a lifetime learner helps you avoid mental stagnation. One of the true benefits of eLearning is that a plethora of detailed and concentrated, subject-focused material can be obtained in just a few clicks. Whether it is through a local library, internal company communications, online learning, or as part of a course of study at a place of higher education.

It is very common for the text of your eLearning script to be very dense and include a lot of technical jargon. When choosing a voice actor to deliver this information, they need to be engaging and carry the message in a conversational and friendly way. For example, if the listener is hearing a reassuring tone in the voice-over while watching a training video, they are more likely to remember the material and immediately demonstrate retention in their job performance.
