Kim Handysides | Telephony Voice Over
What would life be like without our phones? It no longer seems imaginable. Today there are a myriad of telephone voice over services to go with our phones. While we may use them more as mobile computers now, they are our source for communications and still primarily our major way to reach out and touch someone. But we can’t always be there live in person. To answer that need, the field of telephony has exploded and even branched into the newer technological spin-off territories of TTS (Text-to-Speech) and AI (Artificial Intelligence).
AI & TTS Voice Over
From Siri to Alexa and beyond, the AI or TTS voice over coming from our phones, our GPS and other apps become important features of the companies creating them. Whether the brand voice of an app for a major department store, an international financial service or a piece of technology itself, voice over artists like Kim Handysides are being hired to be the human bridge between you and your technology. AI doesn’t only mean finding hiring a voice like Kim to become the brand, sometimes recorded voices are required to teach AI computers English. Kim Handysides Voice Over recently managed just such a job involving AI script recording of 135 voice over artists for one of the largest cell phone manufacturers in the world.
