Acoustiguide has extensive experience matching celebrity voices to audio programs. Often, a celebrity has a special connection to an institution or exhibition subject, allowing for a modest honorarium. For commercial projects, there is a more substantial licensing fee for celebrity narration. We work with the celebrity to arrange recording times and locations. Recently, we have recorded audio tours with Jeremy Irons, Walter Cronkite and Tom Brokaw.

Acoustiguide's creative team writes the majority of our clients’ scripts. Our writers are experienced in this medium, and our creative team works closely with the client’s staff from concept through final editing. In some instances, the client provides a script and relies on us for editing, production and transfer to digital audio format.
Acoustiguide works with hundreds of professional voice talents. We always provide several audio samples of voices for you to choose from.
We use sound thoughtfully to enhance the visitor’s experience without diluting the educational message. Acoustiguide maintains an extensive library of music and sound effects available at nominal cost, and we can compose original music. The use of well-known music requires a licensing fee.
