Hissing S? This Is Why

Hissing S? This Is Why

You’re listening back to one of your voice over recordings and wait…what’s that hissing sound?

Yikes! It’s coming from your mouth!

A hissing S, or sibilance, is a common problem and it can really mess up an otherwise great sounding read.

Both men and women can suffer from this frustrating problem, and the older you get, the worse it can become.

You can’t edit it out because it’s part of the words themselves.

Got a hissing S? If so, all is not lost.

There are several things you can do to minimize a hissing S and maybe eliminate it altogether and that’s the subject of this week’s Inside Voice Over Video Training Blog

  1. Susan, As always, great advise! One of my collegues suffers from extreme sibilance and his cure is to wear a Crest White Strip over his front teeth while recording. Works like magic.
