Terms & Conditions Specific to Voice Over Recording
Script – Your script must be emailed as a Text, Word or PDF document.
The script you send and approve for us to record must be the finished script and will be recorded exactly as written.
Mistakes – If you find that the voice-over has mispronounced a word or not followed your direction, under these circumstances our voice-overs will do a reasonable amount of re-records at no extra charge, but you must raise any issues upon receiving the finished files or within 1-2 working days. If you leave it for numerous days / weeks before getting back to us, we will consider this a paid re-record.
If you decide to change your script after recording has started, even if it is only one or two words, you will need to pay additional fees for a re-record. This is because it is not as simple as just re-recording a word and editing it in. It usually involves re-recording a whole line or section and editing it to blend in with the existing audio. This is time consuming and as such, we have to charge accordingly.
We guarantee the following:
- If any pronunciation is not as per your direction, we will correct it for free, however, if you change or add to your script there may be an additional charge
- We will alter the mix levels and voice-over frequency to achieve the best sound possible
- We are happy to provide your audio in the best format for your hardware, even if it means offering you a few alternatives
Although we guarantee the above points, you must notify us of any issues as soon as possible. If you leave it for numerous days / weeks before getting back to us, we will have considered the job complete and closed the project file. Recalling a job from our archive in order to make changes may incur an admin fee.
Once you are happy with the result we will consider the job complete and send you any associated master file(s) in the format required by you or your telephony provider. Audio is delivered online via download.
There are exceptions to this for large jobs, however, this will be at the discretion of the management.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information or clarification on these terms.
