When it comes to choosing the right voice for your project, the type of accent you opt for will impact the message that is delivered. British male voices are often associated with authority and seriousness, making them the perfect choice for projects that push products such as cars, yachts and computers or services like law, banking and insurance.
The kind of accent you choose will also depend on your audience. For example, if you are promoting a local museum in Yorkshire to people from that area, then using a voice with a Yorkshire accent will make the audience feel like they can relate to the narrator and build trust. Similarly, if you are creating a video for teenagers, then a voice that reflects their slang and street language will grab their attention.
Another thing to consider is whether your audience speaks English as a first language. Studies have shown that non-native speakers of English generally find it easier to understand a General American accent, whereas a Received Pronunciation accent can be difficult for them to understand.
With these factors in mind, you can easily find a British male voiceover artist who fits the bill for your next project. To get started, simply post your Union or Non-Union voice over job, listen to samples and connect with the talent of your choice – all for free! You can even work directly with the talent to avoid paying a middleman fee and only release payment once you’re happy.
