It takes only a little preparation to create high-quality voice recordings that will add that special touch to your video. Here are a few tips: 

  1. Find a room with good acoustics. A small room with low ceilings is especially good for this. If your room reverberates a lot when you speak, simply place a light blanket over your head, laptop, and microphone while recording to muffle the reverb.
  1. Warm up your voice and make sure you drink enough while recording. Still, water is best here; coffee, on the other hand, irritates the vocal cords. For better articulation, try a few tongue twisters before recording. 
  1. Decide how you want your recording to sound. More businesslike or relaxed and humorous? In general, it’s a good idea to speak a little slower than you normally would. Also, make sure to consciously emphasize your text and give it highs and lows. This will help you avoid a monotonous recording that will put off viewers rather than motivate them.
