I use a clicker during recording to flag “re-takes” which i do on-the-fly. The raw audio recording is then “marked” using Adobe Audition’s Mark Audio function which enables me to skip rapidly through the file editing out sections marked by the clicker.
This results in the basic edited file which i then “proof” with reference to the original text, editing gaps, levels, excessive breath or mouth noises, etc as i go. Any remaining “mistakes” or deviations from the original text are flagged up during this process and i use pre-roll and punch recording to overdub the corrections.
Languages, dialect and accent
I do not speak any languages fluently other than English. However, I have a general knowledge and good pronunciation of French, German and Hindi/Urdu. Furthermore, I can research and correctly pronounce terms, names and place-names in any language in the world.
My own dialect or accent is standard British. To most people outside the UK I would sound like a Londoner (although not cockney). I was in fact born in London but grew up in the East of England.
I can read in a variety of accents, especially those of Britain and Ireland but also other accents from around the world.
