[Taking a cue from Jeremy Keith1]
Today I spent most of work in the recording booth listening to a voice actor perform the script for a training course Iâ€™m developing. Being in the room during the recording is a new duty for me, and I enjoy it.
My job was to make sure the script was read as written, even when what was written didnâ€™t exactly make sense (ocassionally we could make small changes for grammar). It reminded me of a previous job as a quality control person at a pre-press companyâ€”obsessively checking over printer PDFs to make sure all changes were made correctly. I did well there, and today in the booth. My at-times-unhealthy desire to be correct suits the job well.
