Female narration and the benefits of professional
female voice over narration.
Female narration by a female voice over talent
involves many different genres. Narrators were predominately male for much of the 20th century. Today, female narrators have risen high up the ladder.
Male voices used to be the norm for radio, movie newsreels, and TV. But the industries and audiences have discovered and are still discovering the vast
and varied benefits of female voice over narration.
Female narration is used in: audio books; virtual tours; audio tours for parks and museums; tourism
videos; e-Learning audios and videos; video games; training videos; for public use, such as over the
or for private use. Well known actresses such as Sigourney Weaver and Oprah Winfrey have given voice to
documentaries on TV
channels like Discovery, The Science Channel, and others. But the bulk of female narration on TV is done by female voices whose
names are not household words. Some of these voices we recognize each time we hear them, while the average viewer doesn't readily know
their names. Nicole Blackman and Suzanne Whang as examples.
The female voice over talent must give due focus to her skills as a narrator,
incorporating all her skills, training, techniques, and, of course, her
natural gifts of her unique voice. She needs to hone her acting skills.
Acting ability and instinct is very important in any type of narration.
The female voice actor needs to engage the listener with expressiveness,
sincerity, and color. She needs to be able to interpret
the type of read that is suitable to the specific script and genre.
A nature documentary will obviously be different from a business
training video or a real estate video tour. Audio book narration is
another challenge requiring a special talent with a very flexible voice
and wide vocal register who can portray multiple characters and various
accents when called for. Therefore, know your voice. Know the
voice overs market.
Listen to others and learn. Train and practice.
