Announcement Voice-overs are used for announcements, information, campaigns, such as public interest. These voice calls can be announced to the target audience either by a closed loop music broadcast or by a simple microphone and amplifier. The announcement voice used in closed-loop announcements is important and the presentation language used is also very important. Writing the script before the voice recording will minimize any risk factor. Usually announcers turn to the microphone and voice the announcement live. This poses the risk of making mistakes. These voice-overs are performed under several categories.
