Every pro voiceover relies on an accurate pronunciation guide from customers. Tricky words, place names, manufacturers’ names, acronyms…anything Welsh – they all require a phonetic pronunciation guide. Without being told exactly how our customers want us to say specific difficult words, we’re lost in a labyrinth of remake hell. Trust me – pronunciation guides are ESSENTIAL for a happy audio project. Even the weird Dutch ones that mean you have to sound like you’re coughing up a hairball.
So imagine my delight when I received this from one of my favourite overseas customers today. I love this guy!
