Tips for a Successful Recording

To create the best recording, we recommend the following: 

  • Try to speak slowly and as clearly as possible
  • Try to limit any background noise
  • If recording on a mobile device, hold your device 3–5 inches from your mouth
  • If you experience persistent issues, try recording without headphones
