Thanks very much for the speedy turnaround. Remind me never to play you guys at scrabble.

Audio Recordings

We can produce audio recordings of written materials in a range of foreign languages. These can be used by people with reading difficulties, visual impairment or the elderly. They facilitate access to your resources to groups of people who are not able to read materials, even if translated into their own languages.

To produce an audio recording version of a written document is a four stage process involving:

  • Adapting the text for an audio script rather than written format. For example changing references to page numbers, or “above” or “below” to “earlier” or “later in this recording” to make sense on the recording.
  • Translating the script.
  • Recording the script.
  • Editing the script.

The adaptation is usually carried out by our project managers and the translation by our translators. The recordings are made by voice over artists who are native speakers of the languages required. We use professional recording equipment with the services of a recording engineer to create each recording.

Recordings can be provided in any or all of these formats:

  • Audio cassette tape
  • CD
  • Mp3 file

We can also provide cases for cassettes or CDs and produce covers and inserts for them. This can incorporate artwork and text and is provided as part of our design and printing services.

If you would like further information about audio recordings or would like to discuss your requirements with us, please contact us.
