How to Calculate a Voice Over Narration Script
Mar 14, 2014
If I'm given an approved, final narration script for voice over audio recording, I like to know the script's total duration in minutes so I can:
- schedule my recording studio time, and
- know how much to bill the client.
I follow EdgeStudio in New York via their email newsletters, and only recently discovered a FREE and fun tool they have on their site for calculating minutes of a VO script. I wrote about it, and calculating scripts in general, on my blog. I used Articulate Replay to create the video.
Hope this helps, and please share your suggestions and ideas!
