Writing for Speaking
I just did some audio editing on a project (can't say what, sadly) and I noticed some very AWKWARD phrases the voice talent had to spit out, and I realized that the reason they sounded awkward had a lot to do with not only the terminology (again, I can't emphasize enough the importance of pronunciation guides, even if the words themselves are common, they way they fit together within the context of certain industry jargon can be crucial to credibility) but the sentences surrounding the terminology.
Ostensibly, those taking the course were supposed to be learning from the ground up with this stuff, which means that even as an audio editor or Voice Actor, one should get some take-aways from the material as well. Honestly, due to the run-on sentence nature of the spoken words...I had no idea WHAT was going on.
When writing material that will be narrated, do you find it hard to condense certain kinds of material? Or do you writers/instructors count on a certain degree of knowledge from those who the training is being targeted to?
