Sound Understanding Explained

What happens when you work with us?

You send us the written word, and we return the audio file.

The Sound Understanding team understand the hyperkinetic intellectuals who listen to audio. That is why we match the voice to the material, we multi-voice and add music, we check pronunciations, re-write graphics and slides so that your audio content is complete (we never just cut content). More importantly, our readers understand the words they are reading ….we know that the listener can tell if the voice is intelligent or just reading the words like a computer… so our quality of production is the best and that’s why our clients are everywhere from New York to Edinburgh.

We use London for meetings (the Groucho Club is our favourite watering hole) and Oxford for strategy and Bath is our production base.

We communicate using Skype for business because we like to see our clients and we hope they like to see us … Jennifer is best in the evenings, Cresta is a morning bird and Jane is always-on, so we always have at least two friendly faces to discuss new ideas.

Don’t hesitate to connect with us!
