Do you have the vFactor? New service looks for Voice Talents

The term 'voice-over' is becoming a household term. It is associated with voice recordings for radio and television commercials, sales presentations, educational videos, audio-books, podcasts, animated films and videogames.

Businesses can now search for vocal talents using the Voices.com search engine or by posting a voice-over job free of charge. The website is home to over 7,000 voice talents from around the world, representing over 50 languages.

Customers can even bookmark talents of interest in their ‘Favourites,’ a new section in their account dedicated to managing business relationships with professional voice talents.

Posting a job is a popular option for many businesspeople. This service allows clients to map out project requirements, then receive a range of voice samples and obtain quotes immediately. In addition it will catalogue all responses conveniently in their Voices.com account.
