The Art of Voice Acting is considered by most voiceover professionals to be the single, most comprehensive book on the subject ever written. More than a dozen universities use the book as a major textbook in their performing arts programs. Each new edition contains a substantial amount of content that is not included in prior editions. If you are actively involved in any area of voiceover and have a technique, “trick of the trade”, a process, or information you would like to share with those learning this craft, I invite you to consider contributing to the next edition.

ERRORS & OMISSIONS:
It is my intention that The Art of Voice Acting be as accurate and current as possible. If you find something that appears to be in error, please send an email to: email@example.com. It seems that no matter how many proof readers or editors there are, or how many times a book is “proofed,” at least one or two mistakes will always slip through. Following are corrections that we’ve found in each edition after the first printing. The corrections below have been included in successive editions.
FIFTH EDITION, 1st PRINTING:
- Pg 38, section on Accent Reduction or Minimization: The last sentence of the first paragraph in this section begins “In But even though…” The word “In” was inadvertently not deleted from a previous draft of the paragraph. The sentence should begin “But even though..”.
FOURTH EDITION, 1ST PRINTING:
- In the Table of Contents, Maxine Dunn’s last name is misspelled with an “e” at the end. The correct spelling (Dunn) appears at all other locations where her name is referenced.
- Chapter 4: The top right hand page header should read “The Business of Voiceover: Getting Paid to Play.” The working chapter right-page header of “Chapter Title Here” was inadvertently overlooked by the editor.
- Page 27: The discussion of Financial Core in the section titled “Working Freelance” mentions that residuals do not apply for work done under financial core. This is incorrect! The correct sentence should read as follows:
There are no residuals for nonunion work. However, a financial core voice talent working under a union contract will receive the same benefits as a full union member, including residuals.
KINDLE EDITION – 1st edition (4e):
Because viewers of the Kindle eBook edition may not include page numbers, it is difficult to provide accurate locations for the errors that have been found. Following are the errors we are aware of. These were corrected in the revised Kindle Edition.
- Chapter 14: The Character in the Copy has some incorrect formatting and typographical errors that were the result of manual re-formatting necessary for the eBook Kindle edition. I am working with my publisher and Amazon.com to correct the formatting and typographical errors, but we have no assurance that the errors will be corrected.
- Many of the full page charts and forms were scanned as low-resolution images for inclusion in the Kindle edition. At their small size, they are very difficult to read and if expanded in size become extremely blurry. It is unclear whether or not higher resolution images can be included in the Kindle eBook edition, so the full page images and forms are included here for you to download: Downloadable PDF files & forms.
KINDLE EDITION – 2nd edition (5e):
- We’ve received some reports that the QR codes in the Kindle edition for 5e are not working, or rather, that all QR codes are the same and re-direct to the same place. If you have this Kindle edition and find this is true, please let us know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
