Bob’s Probably a Nice Guy, But… Voiceover for Slide Decks?

Office worker trying to record voiceover for slide deck on his phone
Record no evil and hear no evil! Don’t let Bob do the voiceover for that slide deck.

What would you do if your manager came over to you and said, “I need voiceover for that slide deck”?

You need a what for the slide deck?! Ugh, what the heck IS “voiceover”?

Would you know where to start if this happened to you?

SPOILER ALERT: you can use Dooley Media Works to do it for you – it’s what we do. In fact, we specialize in it. We’ve been recording voiceover for slide decks, presentations, and explainer videos for almost 20 years.

We could go on about all of those online sites calling themselves “voice” this and “voice” that but we’ll save you the time – you get what you pay for and you’ll have to sift through the “talent” to find the ones who actually have a broadcast-quality mic and a recording studio. Oh, and this is assuming they actually have experience! Cross your fingers and hope for the best? Or you can hire a professional voice actor (for considerably less than you think).

Dooley Media Works can help. We provide professional voiceover for slide decks in both English and international languages, featuring highly experienced male and female talent. For more information, contact our team at We have a bulk discount for new clients, and sample script recordings are always free!

Here’s an idea… get Bob to take a stab at recording the voiceover for that slide deck. I mean, he is always saying he’s got a great voice. And then, throw us the script and we’ll give you a sample you can listen to and compare to Bob’s. We’re not trying to hurt his feelings, but y’know just saying.

Your manager might finally consider that raise when you hit ‘play’ on that presentation and they get to hear how good it sounds with the Dooley Media Works voiceover, and not Bob’s (sorry Bob).
