Updates? Pickups? No problem!

It’s inevitable.

At some point, you’re going to need to go back to an eLearning project from the past and update the narration. Maybe it’s a yearly change, or you mentioned something that’s out of date. It could even be a major change to a policy that needs a touch-up.

You finish recording the update, listen back and… uh oh… it doesn’t sound anything like the rest of the module.

You know that the major difference in the original narration and your update will be jarring and completely pull your learner out of the immersion.

Take a listen to the episode to hear 5 factors that may contribute to the change in the sound of your narration and ways you might overcome the issues.

In this episode, I discuss:

  • 5 factors that might change the way your narration sounds
