After spending some time review home studio work on the internet and seeing the general given rates, I have put together this card as a guideline. Prices are negotiable dependent on the type of work, company and budget in hand. If you would like more information please use the contact above.

Length of the Voice Over – There are two ways to do this:

1 – Time basis: Based on the actual time the recording will be
(Ie: 30 seconds, 60 seconds, 20 minutes, 1 hour et al)

2 – Word basis (paging): Based on the number of words or pages the script has.
One page contains 250 words on average (Arial 12 pt double spacing).

Total Word Count is associated to the rate I would normally read which varies on each project.
Steady 100 words per minute –  faster 150 words per minute.
500 – 750 per 5 minutes = Total Minutes of finished audio, or edited, mastered and delivered to client.

N.B. Please not that if you intend to use 4 syllable words, you should count these as two words.
