How to Get Started in Voice Acting A voice over is the voice of an unseen narrator, in a movie or a television broadcast. It is a recording performed by a voice talent that gives life to characters, tells a story, guides you on a tour, or directs your telephone calls. Usually, professional voice actors are enthusiastic, funny, charming, are flexible, and interact well with other people.
