Issue with voiceovers

Hi!

In my projects, I have been using my coworkers voices for voiceovers. Most of them are not voice talents, except for this one: click on IE (Institutional Effectiveness or Equity).

For prototypes, I use avatar voices (i.e. From Text to Speech)

A few months ago, I stumbled upon VoiceBunny.

Do you guys use resources like this one? What is your experience?

We normally have the SMEs of the content do the voiceover and, surprisingly, they usually do a good job. For these "academic"-type courses, we don't expect professional-level quality.

However, a few times we wanted to use professional voice talent with a British accent, so we used Voices.com to solicit bids and then contracted with a few of the bidders. I coordinated the work with three different contractors -- one who was in the US and two who were in the UK -- and the process went smoothly. Just about everything, including payment, was done through the site.
