    Cooking For Kids

    Script:

    Cooking is a great thing to start teaching kids at an early age. I grew up in a family full of great cooks and chefs. Watching them prepare wonderful meals or just a good sandwich was always fun to me and developed my love for cooking.

    How's my read as far as pacing, inflection, pitch lift? What about the recording quality? Thanks in advance for the feedback.

    Peer Feedback:

    I like th delivery overall. Pacing seems okay too. I would watch the articulation of 'chefs', it kind of drifts off at the end of the word and is not very clear. To my ears I see the eq curve taming the lows a bit and accenting the highs a bit more for clarity-sake.

    "Ordeal in Space "by Robert A. Heinlein

    Script:

    Maybe we should never have ventured out into space. Our race has but two basic, innate fears; noise, and the fear of falling. Those terrible heights—Why should any man in his right mind let himself be placed where he could fall…and fall…and fall—But all spacemen are crazy. Everyone knows that.

    The Medicos had been very kind, he supposed. “You’re lucky. You want to remember that old fellow. You’re still young and your retired pay relieves you of all worry about your future. You’ve got both arms and legs and are in fine shape.”
    “Fine shape!” His voice was unintentionally contemptuous. “No, I mean it,” the chief psychiatrist had persisted gently. “The little quirk you have does you no harm at all—except that you can’t go out into space again. I can’t honestly call acrophobia a neurosis; fear of falling is normal and sane. You’ve just got it a little more strongly than most—but that is not abnormal, in view of what you have been through.
    The reminder sent him to shaking again. He closed his eyes and saw the stars wheeling below him again. He was falling…falling endlessly. The psychiatrist’s voice came back through to him and pulled him back. “Steady old man! Look around you.”
    “Sorry.”
    “Not at all. Now tell me, what do you plan to do?”
    “I don’t know. Get a job I suppose.”
    “The company will give you a job, you know.”
    He shook his head. “I don’t want to hang around a spaceport. Wear a little button in his shirt to show the was once a man, be addressed by a courtesy title of captain, claim the privileges of the pilot’s lounge on the basis of what he used to be, hear the shop talk die down whenever he approached a group, wonder what they were saying behind his back—no thank you!
    “I think you’re wise. Best to make a clean break, for a while at least, until you are feeling better.”
    “You think I’ll get over it?”
    The psychiatrist pursed his lips. “Possible. It’s functional you know. No Trauma.”
    “But you don’t think so?”
    “I didn’t say that. I honestly don’t know. We still know very little about what makes a man tick.”
    “I see. Well I might as well be leaving.”
    The psychiatrist stood up and shoved out his hand.
    “Holler if you want anything. And comeback to see us in any case.”
    “Thanks.”
    “You’re going to be all right. I know it.”
    But the psychiatrist shook his head as his patient walked out. The man did not walk like a spaceman. The easy, animal self-confidence was gone.
    Only a small part of Great New York was roofed over in those days; he stayed underground until he was in that section, then sought out a passageway lined with bachelor rooms. He stuck a coin in the slot of the first one which displayed a lighted “vacant” sign, chucked his jump bag inside, and left. The monitor at the intersection gave him the address of the nearest placement office. He went there, seated himself at an interview desk, stamped in his finger prints, and started filling out forms. It gave him a curious back-to-the beginning feeling; he had not looked for a job since pre-cadet days.
    He left filling in his name to the last and hesitated even then. He had had more than his bellyful of publicity; he did not want to be recognized; he certainly did not want to be throbbed over—and most of all he did not want anyone telling him he was a hero. Presently he printed in the name “William Saunders” and dropped the forms in the slot.
    He was well into his third cigarette and getting ready to strike another when the screen in front of him at last lighted up. He found himself staring at a nice-looking brunette. “Mr. Saunders,” the image said, “will you come inside please? Door seventeen.”
    The brunette in person was there to offer him a seat and a cigarette. “Make yourself comfortable Mr. Saunders. I’m Miss Joyce. I’d like to talk with you about your application.”
    He settled himself and waited, without speaking.
    When she saw that he did not intend to speak, she added, “Now take this name “William Saunders” which you have given us—we know who you are, of course, from your prints.”
    “I suppose so.”
    “Of course I know what everybody knows about you, but your action in calling yourself “William Saunders,” Mr.—“
    “Saunders”
    “—Mr. Saunders, caused me to query the files.” She held up a microfilm spool, turned so that he might read his own name on it. “I know quite a bit about you now—more than the public knows, and more than you saw fit to put into your application. It’s a good record, Mr. Saunders.”
    “Thank you.”
    “But I can't use it in placing you in a job. I can't even refer to it if you insist on designating yourself as Saunders.”
    “The name is Saunders. His voice was flat, rather than emphatic.

    Nice job for a long read. Nice voice too! If I didn't read the text along with your read sounded great.

    To be nit picky, as I followed along with the text, I notice that you weren't paying close attention to the copy, for instance 'Why should any man" you read as "Why would". Also, you read several sentences in this passage together as one sentence, one example is 'But all spacemen are crazy. Everyone knows that." There are other places where you added words or left them out. . "below him again. He was falling" you connected these two sentences with the word 'and'.

    All that nit picky aside, I thought you had a good narrator's voice!

You replaced 'for' with 'on' in the last sentence. It's funny when our brain puts something in that we think SHOULD be there, but is not. We all do it!

    Meditation

    Script:

    Meditation

    Sit or lie comfortably. You may even want to invest in a meditation chair.
    Close your eyes.
    Make no effort to control the breath; simply breathe naturally.
    Focus your attention on the breath and on how the body moves with each inhalation and exhalation. Notice the movement of your body as you breathe. Observe your chest, shoulders, rib cage, and belly. Simply focus your attention on your breath without controlling its pace or intensity. If your mind wanders, return your focus back to your breath.
    Maintain this meditation practice for two to three minutes to start, and then try it for longer periods.

    Hello All! This is only my second upload so I am rather new to this. You will notice this voiceover is a rather slow pace and I have included my slate at the beginning. I feel very weak at my slate like I have to find a comfort zone to give my name at the beginning and would like feedback on that. I paced this out so that I give instructions and expect the listener to follow. Let me know if it is paced out much too slow for your liking! Any feedback on recording quality is much appreciated!

    Peer Feedback:

    I thought overall this was very good! Pacing was a tad too slow but slow is good for this kind of relaxing read. Since this is for meditation, you did a great job using enough inflection to keep it interesting but not too much to make it not sound relaxing anymore. There were a couple spots where it did have almost too much inflection though. Otherwise good job!

    There are 3 characters in this script. All are done with my voice, no recording add-ins. My main concern is the performance of the 3 characters. Did I capture them? Second is the issue of recording quality. I think I eliminated the background noise of the extremely loud fan on my new laptop.

    /sites/default/files/script-recordings/user-129235/script-recording-98655.mp3

    Peer Feedback:

    I love the range of the characters you have so far. On a technical level, I feel Bane has too much gruff to his voice, it makes it difficult to understand him. Bane in the comics is... basically a pump-up/drugged-up luchador. He's intimidating, but it sounds like you're straining your voice in trying to make him sound so evil. My advice for him is to let go more, don't try so hard with him. He's not superhuman persay, so it's ok to not sound so gruff and evil. If you can add a Spanish accent, that would be a plus.
    For Batman, if any character out of these 3 should have the gruff voice it's him. He's in disguise, so he's trying to hide his regular voice. No need to make it SUPER deep, but take what you did and "try to hide it" a little more. If that makes sense. Remember, he's not a superhero, he's a vigilante making his own justice.
    And for the Joker: find the joke. His whole character is that he can always find the joke, even if it's something gruesome. He's crazy, so don't be afraid to let go and go crazy! Here you sound more like Jared Leto's Joker, which is fine if that's the choice you are making. But coming for a fan of the comics and character, The Joker is so much fun to play because of how crazy and cunning he is, so feel free to let go more instead of sounding so intimidating.
    Overall I think you did a great job with your voices, I can see you doing Animation. I hope my explanation of the characters make sense and help you develop them more!

    Peer Feedback:

    Ian, I am very new to this myself, but I think your voice sounds great. Your noise floor is good but I do hear a few clicking sounds in the background (16 second mark), maybe a chair or tapping a key on the computer to scroll through the script? At the very end, there are some mouth noises. Looks like you wanted feedback on the recording quality, which seems pretty good to my untrained ear. For performance, there may be a couple of extra pauses that could be removed. That topic is top of mind for me since I just took a class with Edge Studio's David Goldberg, and that was one of his recurring comments to the group. There is a pretty big pause after "Today" in the second sentence. But again, I am pretty new.

    Peer Feedback:

    I found this rather nice to listen to, perhaps because of your accent. Your voice has a nice timbre to it. I listened four times and my ears found the word 'cutting' to be a bit unpleasureable. Like it could be softened just a bit. I think perhaps you are just enunciating it so I could be wrong. The recording quality is very clean! Overall very good job!

    Peer Feedback:

    Overall, I think you sound great! I like the pace, slow enough to understand but not too slow that people would get bored. However, I don't think it would hurt the copy if you sped up the pace by a hair.

    Peer Feedback:

    Hi, I think this will be a good type of read for you. Being new myself one thing I fight with is keeping the same volume throughout the script which you are able to do very well. I would recommend more pitch variation. Try to make it interesting. just imagine all the voice prompts you have had to listen too and imagine how you could make them bearable. Pitch and emotion. I envy the great fit for your voice. Keep speaking :)

    Peer Feedback:

    The sound quality is great and your voice fits this read very well! My only advice to you would be to find the pitch range and play within that. For this kind of read it sounds like the range would be a little small, and in some places you seem to go a little out of the range making it sound like you're trying too hard to make it interesting. In other places, it was a little too monotone. So feel free to play around with the intonation a bit more within a range in order to make it sound interesting but not trying to hard. I hope this makes sense!
    Great job keeping the same volume and tone throughout!

    /sites/default/files/script-recordings/user-105875/script-recording-98651.mp3

    Peer Feedback:

    I definitely hear the enthusiasm in your voice. Might I suggest pitch lift on the word 'more' and 'month'. Instead of going down in pitch on those words, try going up and smile -that will also brighten your tone. (I feel your pain, I am also very monotone, so I try to smile more and use pitch variation, especially not going down in pitch at the end of every sentence).

    Peer Feedback:

    I love your accent and I can definitely hear your effort in getting that enthusiasm in your read! If I could suggest one thing to help you it would be to imagine that you're talking to a person. A real person who you know in real life. This will help you sound more natural, more conversational. If you can't relate to what you're talking about, then substitute it for something else that you are passionate about in your head to help get that emotion in there.

    Peer Feedback:

    @ecstern Thanks for the critique.

    @noellehensler Thanks for the advice. May I ask where you heard the accent in my read? I'm still working on reducing it. I'm trying to improve, which is why I'm asking.

    The Five People You Meet in Heaven (intro) by Mitch Albom

    Script:

    This is a story about a man name Eddie and it begins at the end, with Eddie dying in the sun. It might seem strange to start a story with an ending. But all endings are also beginnings. We just don't know it at the time.

    The last hour of Eddie's life was spent, like most of the others, at Ruby Pier, an amusement park by a great gray ocean. The park had the usual attractions, a boardwalk, a Ferris wheel, roller coasters, bumper cars, a taffy stand, and an arcade where you could shoot streams of water into a clown's mouth. It also had a big new ride called Freddy's Free Fall, and this would be where Eddie would be killed, in an accident that would make newspapers around the state.

    The read was clearly enunciated, but it kept stopping and starting, so to speak. Try to make it flow a little more smoothly. Also, LOTS of background noises. I could hear thumping noises, as if you were bumping your hands on your desk. Good job, overall.

    Peer Feedback:

    Thanks for the feedback. I appreciate your advice. I'm still working on making a soundproof area to do my recordings, can't quite remember if those thumping noises were my hands or the chair I was sitting in. I'll correct my enunciation and make it flow smoothly. Thanks again.

    Peer Feedback:

    I like the quality of your voice for this read, great for storytelling! I mean it piqued my interest to hear more, so mission accomplished!

    I don't think the flow/smoothness problem is with your enunciation. If you give about half the pause you currently do at commas and periods, that should smooth it out A LOT right there. We're taught to really pay attention to punctuation when reading aloud but don't forget - you don't want to sound like you're reading :)

    The thumps, etc are easily fixed - great to use your hands, just make sure they're silent. Overall a nice job!

Experience the wonders and grandeur of a land where few have ever set foot as we discover the world’s last frontier -- the great White Continent. This special voyage takes place during the austral summer, when the weather is best, temperatures are moderate, and days are long.

    Sounds good, but you left out the last two sentences. Keep up the good work.

    Peer Feedback:

    Your voice is compelling and has me listening intently, eagerly! Your style is dramatic, which is great! One suggestion would be to leave out the staccato quality. In other words, let the words blend a little bit. There are a few abrupt spaces between words. Overall, great work!

    Peer Feedback:

    I like the read up until "soaring" - then you go a bit over the top and become too dramatic for the read. At that point sounds like you're trying too hard to make the read "wondrous". You have the advantage of the accent (to an American ear) that immediately makes you sound more "polished" right off the bat.

    Music selection is great and sound quality seems solid.

    Thanks all for the feedback, much appreciated.

    A Story

    Script:

    Every moment has a story. And every story matters

    The first men painted stories on stone walls, the ancient Egyptians chose the chisel instead.

    The Incans told story with dances and fire, aborigines told it with star and spear.

    Stories are at the very essence of human life. They count the breaths of every sunrise, the beats of every emotion and the silence of every heart. Stories take the fleeting temporal and makes them eternal.

    Great read. Could use more emotion and the music was a little loud at the end, maybe turn it down a little and I think you've got yourself a good first take performance wise.

    Peer Feedback:

    Nice read! The only critique I have is you may want to give it a bit more processing on your voice to even things out. The end of your sentences tended to drop off a bit volume-wise, and watch the script... You switched out 'of every sunrise' to be 'in every sunrise'. You might want to have the music fade out a bit later after your last word.

    Overall the recording is poor. The vocal is too quiet and isn't clear enough. Sounds like you're trying to copy the 'Honest trailers' movie trailer style voice but it's not quite right. Also you didn't add the laughter as directed in the script. Just an honest opinion, keep at it i'm sure you'll find somthing that works.

    Composites

    Script:

    Composites are a pre-designed combination of fibrous reinforcements held together by a polymer matrix. Reinforcements can be aramid, carbon, or glass fibers, and the matrix either a thermoset or a thermoplastic resin. Product forms include unidirectional tape, woven fabrics, or continuous filaments which can be layered or wrapped in various orientations. When heat treated and pressure consolidated, they form laminates or structures that are stronger than steel and lighter than aluminum. Chief among the advantages of polymer matrix composites is their light weight coupled with high stiffness and strength along the direction of the reinforcement. This combination is basis of their usefulness in a wide variety of structural applications.

    I like your copy interpretation - sounds like a National Geographic Documentary. To be nit picky on your vocal performance - I thought it was good, but you had a some dramatic pauses where there were no commas and for me that interrupted the smooth flow of the read...'time would end' pause 'violent apocalypse' pause - just a tiny bit too long for me. The word 'every' near the end maybe better articulated. Recording sounded good to me. Overall great job.

    Peer Feedback:

    Thanks @ecstern. Great feedback much appreciated.

    I would disagree on the pauses. I would like to see a bit more. It would seem natural to have one at the top, "The Maya

    Peer Feedback:

    Overall I like the read - your voice brings a different interpretation than I head in my head when I read the copy! I'd say slow it down a little bit, as it seems a bit rushed and breathy, but I like your emphasis on the right words toward the end.

    As far as recording quality, I think your mic settings sound good for your voice. If you slow down a bit and do some work to edit out the breaths and some irregular background noises, I think it will sound great.

    Peer Feedback:

    Slow it down a little bit. Other than that, pretty good.

    Peer Feedback:

    After listening a number of times, there's definitely some audible room reverb going on. Mics from new to old, cheap to expensive will pick that stuff up, so best to kill it dead with some appropriately placed sound absorption, if this is the room you intend to record in regularly.

    It sounds performance wise that you're doing a radio announcer voice, but this style of read is only rarely requested nowadays, and the script doesn't naturally seem to demand it. Read through the script in your head slowly first. Read it slowly and deliberately again, but out loud and without inflection. Then figure out what the message is, who you're talking to (get as specific as you can) and some kind of scenario in which you're talking to that person or persons for real. Just be natural.

    When figuring out a script, I'll even write the answers out to those questions, and maybe even find a little visual aid to better allow me to put myself into the role and stay there until I get the best take I feel I can get.

    Peer Feedback:

    Get rest before you record :) It was almost as if you were saying - 'let me hurry do this', and it came through in the recording. There was some mouth noise that was a little distracting. When you said "If you're in an accident" , you ran out of breath and it seemed to clip. Keep at it!!!

    I like your voice for this piece - I'd say it's a little too relaxed overall and could benefit from some more energy behind it. The emphasis seems off on some words/phrases as well - if you land harder on "advanced communication system solutions" it would make me feel better about the product. As it stands now, it leads me as a listener to think that you're going to continue that thought rather than being sure what the product is.

    Central Limit Theorem

    Script:

    If samples of a population with size n are drawn, and the values of x-bar are calculated for each sample group, and the distribution of x-bar is found, the distribution’s shape is found to approach a normal distribution for sufficiently large n. This theorem allows one to use the assumption of a normal distribution when dealing with x-bar. “Sufficiently large” depends on the population’s distribution and what range of x-bar is being considered; for practical purposes, the easiest approach may be to take a number
    of samples of a desired size and see if their means are normally distributed. If not, the sample size should be increased.

    /sites/default/files/script-recordings/user-113588/script-recording-98602.mp3

    Peer Feedback:

    Overall your delivery seems mostly appropriate for this kind of material, though adding a little greater sense of energy (not speed) could definitely boost your performance. If you're trying to sound like a math teacher (a stereotype) instead of speaking as you would: earnestly trying to communicate to a class of math students, your mindset may need to shift towards the latter kind of performance which may also affect your read towards having better energy.

    On the technical side, there's an audible hiss throughout the recording. It might be correctable using a noise gate as it's not loud enough to be distracting, but it is loud enough to cause a client to reject it. I'd like to hear what it sounds like after a noise gate is applied.

    You have good speed to your read. A lot of people would try blowing through the material too quickly.

    Peer Feedback:

    Thank you for your feedback it is much appreciated. I noticed a hiss in my mic a couple of days ago - it comes and goes a bit when I speak, I don't notice it between words - is this what you are hearing? What type of noise gate? I haven't looked into that yet.

    Peer Feedback:

    I'm hearing it throughout the recording, but especially in the pauses between words, actually.

    A noise gate is a generic term for a digital audio filter that either comes with your editing software (or DAW) or if it doesn't include it, can often be bought as a plug-in extra for the software. You essentially tell the filter to screen out any sound that doesn't rise above a decibel level you set, which is also called the threshold. Typically you also have additional controls on a noise gate that go with any filter like "attack" and "release" which tells the filter if it should start or stop "x" number of milliseconds before or after the gate would ordinarily be triggered. These are useful because some consonant sounds we make while speaking (like the 'f' sound) start quite softly and can get cut off prematurely without the leeway that the "attack" provides. Same goes for soft trailing sounds in speech and the "release" control.

    Most of the time I have my gate threshold set at -60 dB because all my background noise falls below that, but you may need to set yours differently. In any case, see first to reducing the background noise as much as you can by other means, because the gate won't remove hiss from behind your voice. If you're too far away from the mic while recording, your gain is probably set to high and the mic's natural hiss may be creeping in. If you're the right distance from the mic, then maybe the microphone quality isn't what it should be and in that case you may consider upgrading to a higher quality mic.

    It could be a lot of different things, but I think I'm getting a little off topic if I start getting into all of those. Besides, I don't know your set up as well as you do!

    Best of luck in your work.

    Peer Feedback:

    Thank you Dubois, I downloaded the plugins for Noise Gate and applied it to my Composite track. I only notice that in between my pauses it is very quiet. I still hear something with my microphone - not sure about it. I will try using it on my next copy. Thank you very much!

    Lost Eden

    Script:

    Introducing: Lost Eden. A red to rival the Reds.

    When the Ottoman Empire deemed our wine unholy, we took our winemaking to the hills. When bloody Turkish battles sliced our vines down to their soil, we grew them back stronger. And when the Soviets seized control of our winemaking industry, we took our family recipes underground. We used centuries-old techniques to make the wine we love in secret while Communist Russia controlled our state. By day, the Reds had us making watered-down imitations of Georgian wine for mass consumption. By moonlight, we were home, quietly perfecting the delicate recipes of our ancestors.

    We are the country of Georgia, a lush garden nestled between the Black Sea and Russia’s southern border. We are the birthplace of wine and home to one of the most resilient cultures on earth. Taste the wine you weren’t supposed to—a red to rival the Reds.

    Peer Feedback:

    Hi Cornelius,

    On recording quality, your background noise sounds quite loud. If you can, try to record in a quieter space, and muffle sources of noise like computer fans, air conditioning, etc. Get your noise floor as low as is possible so your voice stands out as much as possible from your background. I try to aim for a noise floor quieter than -60 dB. It makes it easier to successfully use a noise gate on whatever little noise is left.

    I think I can hear the effect of the room you're recording in as well. Perhaps a little more broad-frequency damping? There's plenty of advice on how to achieve that by digging around youtube.

    Your pacing was good. Could use a little shaking up by varying your emphasis as all the words seem emphasized the same, but this still counts as a good first attempt!

    Peer Feedback:

    A little too much room noise, but other than that it was good.

    Sounded like a great read to me, both you're technique and the sound quality. As a big Audi fan myself, I would have chosen to infuse a little more excitement/awe as you build toward the end of the model lineup. Whoever's listening to this will be somewhat into cars, and a 540 V10 is pretty monstrous - something they would be excited about as well! Just think it would add a little unique hook to really make this shine.

    Peer Feedback:

    I think what TKVO said was right about the monotonous sound. The read has a lot of the same musicality repeating itself. Listen to your words like they were notes and hear how the pattern becomes repetitive. Other than that, I can't be sure, but I keep thinking I hear a fan noise in the background. Maybe check your noise floor? I've been trying to keep mine below at least 60 dB.

    Your words are clearly delivered and read at a fairly good speed though.

    Thanks all for the feedback! Definitely understand the similar cadence/monotony - definitely something I'm trying to work on. Really appreciate it!

Recording quality is good - I did hear the mouse click at the end so you may want to work on editing these out. You sound great - really natural and enthusiastic. Wish I had an ounce of that in my reads!

    Peer Feedback:

    i thought it was great. I always listen to these as if I was listening to the radio to see how believable it is. You get a 9/10. I can hear this on the radio now. Only feedback, and I may be stretching, but maybe a little more enthusiasm on "And don’t forget...we can cater your next special event or meeting"

    That might be a little nit picky, but all I can think of

    Migraine Headaches

    Script:

    Today, thanks to new medical research, doctors have a better understanding of migraines. They know that a migraine is more than just a “bad headache.” It has a unique set of biological causes and physical symptoms. These symptoms include at least two of the following: pain on one side of the head, throbbing pain, pain that’s moderate to severe, pain that’s aggravated by activity. Migraine symptoms also include one of the following: sensitivity to light and/or sound, or nausea with or without vomiting. Doctors also have better insight into how much a migraine can affect you and everyone around you. Today doctors can diagnose migraines better; and they can provide treatment programs that are surprisingly effective.

    My recording quality is not the best, so feedback on performance is my focus.

    Peer Feedback:

    Nice! I you have a nice voice and it is good for this type of medical read - sound like a nurse or doctor. One suggestion that I have been told, is to make the read sound as if you are naturally talking to a friend or relative. Even go as far as having someone ask you, 'what's going on today?' and then follow that question with your first sentence and tell them what's going on today... thanks to new medical research, doctors have a better understanding of migraines. Also, as you said, you need to work on your recording quality. Nice!

    Air Processor 2000

    Script:

    To install a new capsule into your air purifier, switch the unit “off.” Then remove the new capsule from it’s protective wrapping. Open the capsule cap by turning in the direction opposite to that indicated by the arrow on the cap. Insert the capsule in the cap until the tabs catch the cap. Insert the complete cap into the air purifier. Turn the cap in the direction of the arrow. And then switch the unit back “on.” Your air purifier will now release a pleasant fragrance during operation. Either choose “repeat” to watch this demonstration again, or it will automatically close.

    I am hearing something new with my microphone - bit of a ringing buzz - do you hear it? Otherwise, how's my read?

    Peer Feedback:

    I'm listened several times with my DT 770s and I don't hear the noise you're describing. Otherwise I felt your recording quality was fine. Your performance, pacing, and enunciation is solid. Great job.

    Peer Feedback:

    i didnt hear anything either. I was thought was good for a dry subject. I feel like the last line "Either choose “repeat” to watch this demonstration again, or it will automatically close." was the best part I feel like the last sentence had more variety and pitch variation. Maybe the entire read can you have more inflection, but other than that - great!

    Amica Life Insurance

    Script:

    In the next fifteen minutes, you will learn the four steps towards a better retirement. An IRA will be a key player in almost any retirement plan. Here are some steps you can take now to make your IRA work harder for you and help secure a more comfortable retirement. The earlier you start contributing to a tax-deferred annuity, the larger your nest egg can grow. Over time, the combination of tax deferral and compound interest can be dramatic. Although you can open an IRA annuity with as little as 50.00, make the maximum contribution.

    How is my voice for this read? Is my read smooth or choppy? What about the recording quality? Thank you in advance for your feedback!

    /sites/default/files/script-recordings/user-113588/script-recording-98554.mp3

    Peer Feedback:

    Your voice is smooth and the tone is nicely laid back. I didn't hear any choppiness, but I'm no expert, just a rookie ear listening in. Quality is pleasing to the ear with no
    background or ambient noises.

    Working From Home

    Script:

    Working in your pajamas. Skipping traffic. Oh yeah. Knowing your lunch is safe from poachers. That’s the blissful reality of working from home.
    But as anyone who has done it can tell you, the reality is a lot less dreamy.
    There are no annoying coworkers snapping gum in your ears, but then again, there are no co-workers at all, which can lead to loneliness and isolation. And when there’s no one around to catch you Facebooking or Candy Crushing, it can be hard to stop doing those things and actually work.

    I'm new to voice over, working with Edge on my elearning demo, and would appreciate any suggestions or comments on either, or both, the narration, and the editing. Thanks in advance for your advice.

    Peer Feedback:

    I like you voice for this type of read. That being said, the recording quality needs serious attention for you to advance your talents. As for the Vocal Performance, you left out 'Oh yeah' after the fist sentence and the 'That's my' was to close to after poachers so make some space between the sentences. Keep it up!

    Peer Feedback:

    Thanks for your feedback ecstern. I agree, I certainly need to work harder on my editing. And I'll be much more careful with the script from now on. Once again, thanks.
