About Our Narrators

Humans are linked to storytelling. A movie, audiobook, or even an audio tour is more than just a guide - it is a story. Finding the perfect narrator is an essential part of the adventure. 

Matching the function of the narration to the professional narrator you choose is no simple task. Tone, characteristics and pitch are all involved in the process. Filter and search for the exact narrator sound you are looking for and listen to tagged samples based on your specifications. We have done away with unending showreels, replaced with our demo search. What used to take hours now takes minutes.

Reaching as many audiences as possible is just good business. Our top-tier narrators speak in any language and accent that you desire. These are approved and authentic native speakers, so you don't need to worry about a lacklustre impression cheapening your project.

Learn more about Narrators

A narrator is more than a guide. It can be a holding hand that leads through the darkest woods, the turning page transporting you to ancient times, the open palm of a teacher that beckons you to learn. 

In essence, the sound that a narrator takes on is moulded by the role that it serves in any project. The narration for a nature documentary will differ substantially from the typical video game tutorial.

Each of our experts is personally approved before admission to our catalogue of elite performers. We pride ourselves in only the highest calibre of experts on our platform - quality matters. 

Selecting the ideal expert is so simple. Where industry standard casting methods have consisted of bloated showreels that show off everything a professional can do, committing to search showreels for a single relevant sample for potentially hundreds of candidates can take hours.  So we have developed a better way. Our platform uses the power of the digital age to tag and collates samples that can be sifted through by simply typing in what you want. Putting together potential narrators takes minutes - not hours. 

There is no reason that your narration should be restricted to one language. We have a massive directory of experts around the world, speaking any language you could desire. By pairing with genuine speakers, we are enhancing representation and augmenting authenticity. Pair this with our extensive translation services for maximum localisation. The accessibility functionality we offer also open up your narration project to a plethora of disabled and foreign audiences. Access is an incredible gift to so many who otherwise would not be able to engage with your work.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a narrator?

A narrator is needed to provide expert storytelling, commentary or a spoken account of events.

Typically you hire a professional narrator for an audiobook or film production, such as a documentary.

Hiring an experienced narrator has increasingly become an essential requirement for those seeking to maximise their audience on YouTube or deliver eLearning to employees.     

What makes a good narrator?  

Skill and experience are the requisites that separate a good narrator from an average one.

A professional narrator uses a combination of vocal and mic techniques to harmonize the audience's emotions with the twists, turns and reflections of your story.

You may want your message to excite, move, analyse, or educate. A good narrator will work closely with authors and producers to embody the message and convey the words and the underlying meaning.

How much does a narrator cost?  

The cost of hiring a narrator depends on the format of the content. If you are producing an eLearning, the rates will depend almost entirely on the word count.

For audiobooks, per finished hour of audio is the standard. Suppose you're generating visual content such as a documentary or animation.

In that case, the broadcast audience, territory and mediums will determine if usage fees, in addition to the recording session fees, are required. In all cases, more experienced narrators will naturally charge higher rates. 

How do I hire a narrator?  

When hiring a narrator for an audiobook or any other type of long-form content, you should use the advanced search tools and select 'Narration' in the Style filter.

This selection will allow you to browse and consider the vocal range and attributes that best match the storytelling qualities you seek.

You can make a booking request for individual narrators by viewing their profile or submit a shortlist of preferred candidates to check rates and availability with them all.
