Hubby came across this Facebook post and I won’t lie—it irked me just a little (the post, not hubby). It wasn’t the fact that this producer didn’t want to hire a professional voice actor …
Rather, the reason why.
See for yourself:

… Worth considering for your next commercial / explainer video / eLearning package / corporate video / basically anything needing a voice / heck if it doesn’t need a voice, add one anyways.
