What is Technology Voice Over? Coach with Anne!

Films like The Terminator, iRobot, and 2001: A Space Odyssey show robots at odds with the human race. However, artificial intelligence (AI) in these movies is rarely depicted accurately. Instead of living in a world where robots conquer humanity, we now use AI, augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR) to train military soldiers, robotically assist surgeons, and create a more realistic gaming experience. Voice over is essential for companies who want to provide a complete and immersive experience for their customers, and technology voices need to be intelligent, trustworthy and clear.
