Our British Voice Overs For Autodesk

At Metro Audio and Video, we’re a voice over agency that specializes in providing British voice over services, translation, and localization solutions to customers worldwide. Recently, Autodesk reached out to us with a request for a male British English voice over actor for their corporate video. They wanted a baritone voice that sounded professional and relatable, and we were happy to provide them with a pool of talented voice over artists.

To ensure that we could meet Autodesk’s specific needs, we carefully reviewed our database of British voice over actors and selected several individuals who fit the criteria. We then shared their demos with Autodesk to give them a sense of each voice and help them make an informed decision.

After reviewing the demos, Autodesk selected a male British voice over actor. We then coordinated with the actor to schedule the recording session and ensured that all technical aspects, such as audio quality and timing, were taken care of.

During the recording session, our team of audio engineers worked closely with the voice over actor to ensure that the recording met our high standards for audio quality and accuracy. Once the recording was complete, we carefully reviewed and edited the audio to ensure that it was flawless and ready for use in Autodesk’s video.

The end result was a top-quality British English voice over that perfectly matched Autodesk’s requirements. Our team at Metro Audio and Video was thrilled to have provided our expertise and experience to deliver a voice over that exceeded our client’s expectations.

FAQs About Our British Voice Overs

What's the difference between British English and Neutral English?

British English and Neutral English (also known as International English) are two distinct varieties of the English language. While they share many similarities, there are some key differences between the two.

British English is the variety of English spoken in the United Kingdom. It includes various regional accents and dialects, such as Cockney, Scouse, and Geordie. British English has its own unique vocabulary, pronunciation, and grammar rules that differ from other varieties of English.

Neutral English, on the other hand, is a standardized form of English that is used as a lingua franca in international settings. It is designed to be easily understood by speakers of different varieties of English and is typically used in business, diplomacy, and academia. Neutral English is characterized by its lack of regional accents, its simplified grammar and vocabulary, and its focus on clarity and simplicity.

Some of the key differences between British English and Neutral English include pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammar. For example, British English often includes distinctive features such as the use of the letter “r” in words like “car” and “park,” while Neutral English typically uses a more standardized pronunciation that is easier for non-native speakers to understand. Similarly, British English includes many words and expressions that are not commonly used in Neutral English, such as “lorry” for “truck” and “biscuit” for “cookie.”

In terms of grammar, British English often uses different verb forms and constructions than Neutral English. For example, British English uses the present perfect tense more frequently than Neutral English, and often includes more complex sentence structures and idiomatic expressions.

How long does it take to complete a British voice over project?

The time it takes us to complete a British voice over project depends on several factors, including the length of the script, the complexity of the project, and the availability of the voice over artist. However, we strive to complete all voice over projects as quickly and efficiently as possible without sacrificing quality.

For a typical British voice over project, we can provide a timeframe estimate once we have reviewed the script and any other project details. We understand that many of our clients have tight deadlines and we do our best to accommodate their needs.
