As Alan Siegel points out in his TED Talk, legal jargon can be a difficult concept to broach. This extends into the finance field too. Such difficult words, complex definitions, and a degree of technical accuracy can be challenging for narrators.
Talent that is able to convey such information in a meaningful, concise way can be hard to track down. This is especially true nowadays with so many sites and freelancers competing for work. Separating the good quality of recordings from the bad is challenging, but also time-consuming. We realize that may be time you don't have.
Here at Voquent, we make it our mission to connect you with only the best narrators on the market. We also aim to do this as quickly and as efficiently as possible. We vet and approve every professional that we work with to keep the quality high and end product nothing short of perfect.
There are multiple different things for you to consider when thinking about what kind of narrator you want to record your audiobook content.
Law and finance books tend to tie in well with e-Learning content, and therefore invoking emotion in your readers would not be a top priority for you.
With this in mind, it would make more sense to employ a more formal and structured narrator that dials back on the emotion in the narration, for example. Your book’s content and purpose heavily impact the type of narrator you will need to produce your recordings.
If your book is targeted at a specific marketplace, for instance, the United Kingdom, it may make sense to have your recordings produced in one of the various native English accents that find their home in the UK.
We have native English accents for the various British accents, Scottish accents, Welsh accents, and Irish accents. We also provide transatlantic accents, European accents speaking in English, and American English accents, Canadian accents, and more!
If your law and finance book has a marketplace much wider than just English-speaking countries, then getting your audiobook produced in different world languages by native narrators is something you also want to consider.
This is also a service that we provide at Voquent to ensure that you have all the tools you need to get the audiobook recording you want. We provide access to all kinds of languages from really popular ones such as French, Urdu, Hindi, Spanish, Japanese, and more. However, we are also proud to offer more niche languages such as Icelandic, Malay, and Persian.
