Voice prompts / IVR / phone menu systems -- to assist a caller to efficiently locate the most relevant department within your company. Or to eloquently inform callers of your opening hours. Professionally recorded, it presents callers with an image of an organised company office structure. We can provide the audio as special CCITT u-Law 8000Hz format files that are compatible with Asterisk phone systems and many others at no extra charge.

Information messages -- to provide callers with information such as opening hours, directions, special events or offers.

On-hold messages -- don't have the office junior record dull sounding messages with background office noise. Use it as a calming tool to reassure callers or to gently raise awareness of other products or services your company provides. Highly effective yet low cost, proved to reduce caller abandonment by up to 75% whilst at the same time improving your company's professional image. We can also mix the voice track with any music track you provide.

Premium rate telephone lines -- such as prize lines or information services to provide pre-recorded information to callers.

Website greetings -- welcome visitors to your website and add a dimension of sound. We can supply your audio as a Flash file with HTML code which downloads quickly and automatically, playing invisibly in the background on your web page.

Podcasts -- a modern way to inform and sell new products or services through your website, or a great sounding introduction to your own podcast 'show'.

YouTube Video Intros -- an introduction to your own YouTube channel videos or vlogs.

Bands / musical groups / magicians / performers -- just hand a CD or memory stick to the stage manager that introduces your act to the audience for a professional introduction onto the stage! Order different tracks for a post-interval intro or other eventualities.

Interactive multimedia & software -- narration or voices, e.g. narration on help pages or 'getting started' presentations.

Corporate event announcements -- for conferences to introduce guests, presentations, supplied as MP3 or WAV files for easy playback at the event.

Product presentation videos -- filmed and edited for your company website or played on screen at trade shows or events, a custom recorded voice track can be used as a narration, describing, explaining and selling your product or service.
