Voice-over recordings have a specific tone. What’s your desired tone? Is it authoritative? Comedic? Or maybe it’s inspiring! If executed properly, the tone will influence the way your audience feels.
Let’s take an example: a comedic or childish tone in your voice-over could be beneficial for a much younger audience when used in, for example, a commercial for a new toy. The comedic and fun tone could then emphasize the fun in playing with exactly that toy for the audience.
Another important aspect is the script. The chosen language and the order of words influence the tone. It shapes the voice-over, and you should consider your choice of words in the making of the script. You should also consider the length of the script because this influences the tone as well.
This is because the length and positioning of words vary across languages, and a few sentences can turn into several sentences from one language to another. Also, the pronunciation of some words may cause a sentence to be difficult to speak. Making it sound weird, and can be frustrating for the audience since no one likes to listen to a never-ending flood of words. There need to be pauses in between one or more sentences. Consider this, when creating your main script.
