One of the most overlooked aspects of creating a great video is actually the audio quality. It’s important to record your videos in a space with very little ambient noise so viewers with audio on can hear you clearly and the transcription platforms can transcribe your videos more accurately. Here are a few tips on recording quality audio.
Ambient noise is the number one problem for catching great audio. The buzz of a heater or air conditioner, the passing of a large truck or emergency vehicle, and the dreaded construction site are all examples of ambient noise that can ruin your audio.
It’s not uncommon to speed up your speech or speak softly when you are nervous or uncomfortable, especially when you are on video.You can avoid this by actively thinking about slowing down your pace, taking time to pause between thoughts and enunciating your words so that what you are saying can be heard and understood by your audience. In the end this will also help your video to come off more confident and polished.
Your body language and gestures that you use will help to engage the viewer, but you need to be careful of how much you use your hands and where they go. You want to have energy and enthusiasm, just not too much!
