Why Speech-Over?


Principles for the Best E-Learning

One of the early gurus of e-learning, Prof. Richard E. Mayer, defined the principles of great e-learning - which are valid to this day:

  1. Use words and graphics rather than words alone (Multimedia)

  2. Present words as audio narration rather than on-screen text (Modality)

  3. Synchronize spoken words with corresponding graphics (Contiguity)


Modality - Audio Narration Superior to On-Screen Text

Narrated e-learning brings classroom teaching to the computer. It could be a recorded video of a lecture or an animated presentation to which a lecturer's audio track has been recorded, added and synched.

There are many reasons why narrated e-learning is better than text-based e-learning.


  • Visual overload - In text-based e-learning, it is difficult to read text and view graphics at the same time.

  • More content - The narration delivers much more content. A two minute slide can have 300 spoken words but not more than 50 words of readable text.

  • Captures attention - The narrator's voice captures the learner's attention, sets a pace and motivates learning.

  • Better understanding - The narrator uses phrasing and articulation in their speech to bring out the exact meaning of the material in a way that text cannot do.


Problem: Because of time and cost constraints of voice recording many companies opt to skip the Modality principle and settle for text-based e-learning. :-(


The Solution: Speech-Over

Speech-Over overcomes the constraints of time and cost of voice recording in narrated e-learning by using TTS to create and update a narrator's voice track more quickly and inexpensively than by recording. :-)
