How to do a voiceover using ipDTL

If you’ve not heard of ipDTL, it runs on Google Chrome and enables the client (you) to listen in and direct a voiceover session with me, as I voice your script at my studio in London, from wherever you maybe in the world! You get a high quality feed, as if you’re in the studio with me, but nothing you say gets recorded.

Ultimately, this saves time and money – there’s no travelling to a studio, no going backwards and forwards on email/phone trying to get it just right. Having you in on a session means we can nail the voice over in one go, and you get exactly what you’re after.

Once the session is finished, I’ll edit the audio down and Dropbox it over to you, in your choice of format. Or, you can record it your end, if you prefer.

Getting Started with ipDTL

You’ll need:

  • A computer, with microphone (most laptops have this built in)
  • A good internet connection (wifi is okay, cabled much better)
  • Headphones (not essential, but a help)
  • Google Chrome (only works with this browser)

You can adjust the volume here and select which audio source to use (it will usually select this for you, but if you’re using an external sound card, you may need to adjust it manually).

  1. […] There is a medical voiceover sample in there too. I’ve added that to demonstrate how I handle complicated and hard to say names etc. If you can do a medical voiceover and make it sound like you know what you’re talking about, then you’ve nailed it as the names of some of the drugs is just toooo complicated. In situations like that, its so much help having a client sit in on the session via ipDTL. […]
