My Voice Experience

I am a UK British English female voiceover artist and narrator with several years production experience working for BBC Radio and TV and Channel 4 Television, including both voice-over and in-vision presentation.

My voice is described as classy, assured, warm and believable and clients value my crystal clear voice and precise diction. I have a natural RP (Received Pronunciation) British English accent which is neutral and highly adaptable.

Recent work includes audiobook storytelling on Audible, narrating animations for the United Nations and British Council, voicing British Government documents as well as voiceovers for documentaries, corporate videos, e-learning, commercials and promos. I also perform character voices for animation.

I have a professional home studio which means I can offer a fast turnaround and can email or upload audio files in WAV/MP3 or other format as required. Please contact me with your requirements. I look forward to telling your story!

RECENT TESTIMONIALS:-

"Thx so much! You are a true artist and I am honored to be working with you!"
Noah Lukeman, Lukeman Literary Management, New York

"Elaine is a very talented voice over artist with a very soothing and pleasurable voice to listen to. She also does an amazing job with character voices aside from her main narration voice. Listening to her audio you can tell she puts her heart into her work. Now having narrated over 6 books for us, we can confidently say she is always delivering work on schedule and she’s also a very accurate reader that makes little to no mistakes on lengthy books that are over 10 hours in length."
Ali Negahdary, ARN Publications, Los Angeles.

“Your voice is amazing and so clear. English is my second language, so when I listen to you I appreciate the clear spoken English even more.”
Magdolna Laszlo, Translation Project Manager, K International.

"Elaine was great! She had a fast turnaround time and was able to meet our request for the cadence and inflections needed for the script. We will be using her services again!”
Aleah Jean Rosales, Vision Media Studios, Frost & Sullivan, San Antonio, Texas.

“I was searching for a narrator for one of my novels and when I listened to a demo by Elaine, I knew instantly that she was perfect. I wasn’t wrong! Elaine finished the project ahead of the deadline and when I listened to the finished narration, I was blown away. One could tell immediately that she had real empathy for the characters in my book – her tone was perfect in every way in narrative and dialogue. Elaine Wise is extremely professional, yet also takes a personal approach and I hope to work with her again very soon on my future projects.”
H E Joyce, Author “Torment”. Available on Audible.

“When I solicited auditions from numerous narrators for my Be James Bond audiobook, Elaine responded promptly with a marvellous audition. She even provided two distinct versions of it in different vocal styles so that I could choose which style I preferred! Elaine was a treat throughout the rest of the process. She was friendly, courteous, and professional. She delivered the completed audiobook well before our agreed-upon deadline, and it was superb. There was no editing needed. ACX approved it upon our first submission of it. I would use her again in a heartbeat!”
Michael Bush, Author, Massachusetts, USA.

“Thank you very much for your wonderful voice acting.“
Jan Cieślar, Senior Copywriter,Creative Business Unit, Isobar Poland

Aaron Wood, Animator, Slurpy Studios, London.

“We were searching for something very specific for our voiceover and out of the many auditions we received, only Elaine managed to deliver. I look forward to working with her again in the future.”
Leo Earle, Animator, LEON Animation, London.

“The reading was very impressive; the voice range and intonation was perfectly interpreted and really enhanced the meaning of the work, I would definitely recommend working with Elaine.”
Claire Lamont, Author “Ant on a Train” Audiobook for children distributed on Audible/Amazon.

"Elaine helped K International with a very demanding project, in terms of timescales and content, for one of our government clients. She showed genuine interest and keen involvement from the very start of our collaboration. The job was delivered within the deadline we had agreed upon and the results were of very high quality. All in all, Elaine is very professional and pleasure to work with. I can wholeheartedly recommend her services."
Angela Madrid, Translation Project Manager, K International Ltd., UK.

“This is marvellous! Your elocution, vocal style and timing were absolutely superb. I found myself grinning as I listened to it, as you captured the energy of it so well that even I found it inspiring. I’m sure other listeners will get a kick out of hearing you as Miss Moneypenny.”
Mike Bush, Massachusetts, USA - Author “Be James Bond by Miss Moneypenny”, available on Audible.
