If you're in Utah and interested in e-learning, come to the June e-Learning event held by the Intermountain-stc chapter. I'll be giving a presentation on developing a personal voice in audio. It's the same presentation I gave at the Summit in Dallas:
Chapter member Tom Johnson will present on how to develop a personal voice in audio. You'll learn how to create video tutorials with a friendly, personable voice by implementing several audio techniques common to professional voice talents and sound engineers. In this session, Tom will cover the following audio strategies:
- Finding an acoustic environment
- Sounding natural
- Setting up your microphone
- Controlling your breathing
- Avoiding rambling
- Rehearsing the script
- Imagining a scenario
- Dealing with mistakes
- Post-processing the audio
