Script timer calculator

Need a script timer to calculate how long the finished recording of your voice over script will be?

Use our helpful voice over script timer to get an estimated script duration. Our free, word-to-time calculator will give you an estimated voice over script duration based on word count and reading speed.

Our word-to-time calculator gives you a ballpark figure based on word count and reading speed.

You can also modify the script timer voice calculator to reflect your preferred pace and reading speed to calculate the cost of a voice over project more accurately. The script timer helps you with more accurate project estimates instead of rough ideas.

How to use the Script Timer Calculator

You can use the word timer calculator in two ways. First, enter the number of words in your voice over script, or second, paste your entire voice over script in the box provided. Once you’ve entered the word count, the voice calculator automatically weighs words against reading speed to show you the recording length. You can even adjust the speed in the words-to-time calculator to reflect your preferred pacing.
