Fun fact: in no less than 90% of all voicemail assignments, the chosen voice is a voice-over woman. We ourselves think that this is something from the past, when the operator was a woman by default. Would we then expect a woman even sooner for voicemail and telephone messages? It's our best guess.
Company film voice-overs in our practice
We see much more variation with regard to corporate videos voice-overs. Although we often hear that people have chosen a certain voice because the client thought it sounded nice. Still, here's a research-based answer. For example, receivers appear to respond better to a male voice-over for male products, and vice versa for female products to a female voice.
Age vs. sound age of voice overs
Voice-overs are of course much less affected by age than fashion models, but there is of course a difference between a voice over of 20 years and 50 years. Yet we know voice-overs of over 50 who still have the voice of a thirty-something. So don't rely on the beautiful pictures of voice actors, but listen carefully to see whether the sound age suits the target group of your video.
If you find it difficult to choose the right voice-over yourself, you can of course ask our voice over agency for some voice proposals. Based on your briefing, someone from our team will present you the best three voices. Good to know that in addition to our online voice file, we also maintain a large database with hundreds of specific voice actors who have worked with us in the past.
