Whether you are a business owner or not I will make this applicable for you. When you have a passion project or any personal project you are responsible for that you need to write a script for you will be able to convert the scripting principles to your personal needs.
It is exciting when a client sends their script for their voice project. It is vital to confirm that it is the finalized script as making changes to a script is more costly & time consuming. I would rather wait & be 100% certain that the script is finalized. Always be clear on costs when a client changes the script after it’s been finalized. Here is my Revision Policy from when I was subscribed to Voices.com 2 free revisions for mispronunciations, for pacing/tone & general feedback. For script changes $40 per sentence to a maximum of $85.
Each word is important & pronunciations are vital. I never take anything for granted if there is a chance that the pronunciation is uncertain. I will proof it by going into Youtube or Google for the correct pronunciations. I will use a syllable method of pronouncing the word. Take for example Similkameen Region I will put right in the script Sim-il-ki-mean, Similkameen Region.
