The fee includes preparation time, the voiceover session fee, use of my studio facilities, dry editing and turnaround to you in a file format of your choice. One round of corrections is included free of charge, relating to voice over error or reading style, for example. Script changes post-recording are charged extra on a pro-rata basis. Online non-broadcast usage is automatically included in the fee if being made for online use. The rate also includes a custom sample of your script prior to recording the full script.
Additional Usage may be payable if for Online Use with large national/multi-national/global businesses. For Internal training/presentation/exhibition use only, the same rates in the above table would apply.
Quotes are always bespoke, as there are so many variables within the E-learning arena, but to help you, these are the things I factor in:
1) Word count
2) If it’s a Volume project – a) all scripts ready to go; or b) contract won, with scripts drip-fed over weeks/months
3) Usage – whether or not the product/s will be sold or used commercially, open source, or in-house use only
4) Lead time
5) Pre-Payment or credit terms
6) Level of editing required
7) If there are multiple files to be made; ie: if a separate file per sentence is required, or per word etc.
8) Accents/character work
I always aim to give clients a range of options here, to suit you or your client’s budget.
