TECHNOLOGY VOICEOVER COACHING
Films like The Terminator, iRobot, and 2001: A Space Odyssey show robots at odds with the human race. However, artificial intelligence (AI) in these movies is rarely depicted accurately. Instead of living in a world where robots conquer humanity, we now use AI, augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR) to train military soldiers, robotically assist surgeons, and create a more realistic gaming experience. Voice over is essential for companies who want to provide a complete and immersive experience for their customers, and technology voices need to be intelligent, trustworthy and clear.
WHAT IS TECHNOLOGY VOICE OVER?
In our current voiceover landscape, people tend to question if artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality technologies are stealing voiceover jobs. My immediate answer is a resounding “no,” as I believe these technologies are creating even more jobs for voiceover professionals.
Augmented reality works to create more mediums that require voice actors as real-estate tour guides, or science-exhibit docents, automated interactions both large and small - all require voices that are easily understood across a wide range of audiences, and whose tones evoke purposeful knowledge.
