    Can you tell me how important is it to be able to do different character voices or accents to be a successful audio book narrator. Also , is there much demand for English accent narrators?

    1. @Andy Varga It absolutely is not important to be able to do different character voices or accents. We address the “character voices” question in this video: http://bit.ly/2AP9ojg

      There’s also no shortage of titles for a narrator with an English accent. In addition to the many books that do require an English accent, there are many books for whom the author didn’t necessarily have a British accent in mind but when the author hears the audition thinks, “Perfect!”

      In the first two videos (http://bit.ly/2AP9ojg), among the graduates you’ll hear from are Jannie Meisberger (English) and Jim Cassidy (Scottish). The number of titles that specifically call for a Scottish accent, of course, is smaller than the the number of titles that call for an English accent. But Jim remains happily busy. While we believe Jim is our only Scottish graduate (so far), numerous active members of the ACX Master Class Mastermind Group are English; none has reported difficulty finding good opportunities.
