why choose us
Voice Talent has been providing live and recorded name reading services for nearly 20 years. We specialize in the live reading of names at university-wide commencement ceremonies. We provide qualified readers who specialize in long and challenging names as well names from over 100 different countries.
We pride ourselves in meeting or beating the national error rate of 6% of all names read down to 3% or less but often times at 1% or less of all names read.
We've worked with large-scale public university systems to dynamic smaller institutions that require specialized services. We also work with high schools, district offices, and private and for-profit institutions.
We work directly with commencement coordinators, officers, and sound designers to plan and execute the best possible sound design for the live reading of names.
