Press Release


Jan 4, 2024

Voices, the world’s leading voice over marketplace, today published Behind The Mic, their annual voice actor trends report. The report found that part-time voice actors are eager to take their career to the next level, with over 60% of part-time voice actors saying they aspire to become full-time voice actors.

Voices’ Behind the Mic report surveyed over 1,100 full-time and part-time voice actors to identify insights and trends in the industry. Despite widespread interest among part-time voice actors to take their career full-time, nearly half (47%) of part-time voice actors have not pursued voice coaching.

“The benefits of receiving coaching, for many, are the key to breaking through a plateau in one’s voice over career and taking voice acting skills to the next level,” says Evan Wiebe, Senior Talent Success Manager at Voices. “Whether it’s improving your range of character voices or dialing in your breath control, anyone can stand to benefit from coaching–but particularly those planning to make voice acting a long-term career.” 

Other key findings from the report include:

  • Television ads are a highly sought after category of voice over work: Two-thirds (66%) of full-time voice actors said they want to book more television jobs in 2024. The next most popular categories are animation (49%), radio (48%), and online ads (47%).
  • Career development is a top priority: Over half (54%) of full-time voice actors work with a voice coach at least once per year, and 45% of part-time voice actors work with a coach at least once per year. Voice actors are interested in improving breathing and vocal control, expanding their range of character voices, and gaining a wider mastery of accents and dialects. 
  • Voice actors are leveling up their tech: In 2024, nearly 70% of part-time voice actors plan to upgrade their studio or recording equipment, and 57% of full-time voice actors plan to make these upgrades.
