Rory’s accents are varied plus he alters his timbre, cadence and even pitch so well…easy to cast in multiple roles within the same episode.
e-Learning Narration – In The Beginning:
Computer-Based Training (CBT), emerged in the 1960s as a versatile, effective and time-efficient/cost-efficient teaching method, and eventually replaced traditional correspondence courses and in-class teaching and training. In 1999 the term Electronic learning (e-learning), became the new term which we use to this day. Studies show that voice-over accompanying written word greatly enhances the learning experience and overall comprehension and retention for individuals taking the course. However, the voice talent you select to teach on your behalf must know how learning is accomplished and how to relate one-on-one to the students.
e-Learning – The Current Landscape:
With a completely up-ended world due to the COVID-19 pandemic the need for people to adjust their lifestyle and routine has been drastic but necessary. A massive component of this tectonic shift has created the need for people to work and learn from home. Companies worldwide are scrambling to produce, procure, assign and distribute e-Learning. Hundreds of millions of people internationally will require educational, instructional content for virtually every field imaginable. A major piece of your e-learning puzzle is finding the right narrator.
Your e-Learning Voice Talent Must Know How to BE a Teacher!
If the narration comes across as disinterested or dry, or as obviously read from a script, the quality of learning will be compromised. Your vocal instructor must understand how to convey the material AND connect to your listener, being familiar with all pronunciations, terminology, slang or acronyms contained in the content and be able to inject a comfortably professional and encouraging presence, as if seated with the student while guiding them through the lesson.
A Certain Amount of Passion for the Subject Must Come Through
If you want your students to be excited about the topic or lecture, the voice over must convey this in tone, pacing and overall delivery. Whatever the e-learning subject, from medical and scientific tutorials to accounting, design, or the hospitality industry, learning should be engaging! Our e-learning voice talent’s expertise ensures that it is.

No one can prattle off “IgE mediated eosinophil production is induced by compounds released by basophils and mast cells, including eosinophil chemotactic factor of anaphylaxis, leukotriene B4, complement complex (C5-C6-C7), interleukin 5, and histamine” quite like Rory can. And without retakes or breathing I might add 🙂
