i-Pairs Inc. (Headquarters: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, President: Mamoru Ito) has recently launched a “narration/announcement sound source production service” that has a wealth of recording records such as announcement voices for facilities, telephone guidance, and audiobooks. From January 31, 2023 (Tuesday), we will offer a service for overseas as “Japanese Narration Service”.

Even when high-quality Japanese voices are required for services for Japanese people (tourist information, video works, web commercials, software, etc.), there is no need to travel to Japan, and voice production can be completed simply by email. (Remote attendance is also available). Communication and direction during recording can be handled in English. No need to worry about communication.
We accept PayPal and credit cards for payment, so you can use it quickly even if you are in a hurry.

■“Japanese Narration Service” service overview
This service is a sound source production service that assigns an experienced voice actor/narrator according to the customer’s needs and performs studio recording and production under a professional director.
Our narration recordings are not recorded at home by a narrator, but are recorded in a studio by a professional director and engineer after the script has been checked and intonation confirmed. Furthermore, after recording is completed, sound adjustment work is performed using our own noise reduction technology using our own AI. Upon request, we can also add and edit original BGM and sound effects. In addition, recording in various foreign languages such as English and Chinese is also possible. We provide high-quality, affordable and convincing narration sound sources, all of which are done by professionals.
