April Watts “The Voice That Electrifies Your Story By Cutting Thru The Mix” is a skilled Voice Actor & Audio Describer with a broad array of expertise. Her extensive background of interpreting backstories over 25 years as a corporate security investigator has given her the eye to see the bigger picture, the investigative instinct to interpret the script and the creative voice to electrify your narrative. This breadth of experience not only electrifies your story but helps your company connect to the listener in a way that they see themselves in your offering.
With storytelling being fostered by her parents at a young age, April has also had a successful career being a highly sought-after public speaker/subject matter expert on the national stage regarding issues related to workplace violence prevention. She is a panel moderator, motivational speaker, segment host on a local radio show and a member of Toastmasters International.
Her passion for interpreting and telling stories is what led her to pursue the experience of being a Voice Actor & Audio Describer. April has trained under Voice Over STL, Voices For All , the Milligan Vocal Arts Institute and the Audio Description Retreat and has worked with coaches Roy Samuelson, Christina Smith, Lisa Biggs & David Rosenthal just to name a few and she is continually expanding her creativity as a voice actor through improv classes and vocal coaching.
April uses her voice to give back by volunteering for MindsEye the Virtual Newsstand as a Reader & Audio Describer for people experiencing blindness, low vision or other physical disabilities by translating vision into audio.
April’s voice over technique creates a sense of trust, honesty, integrity and connection for your customers and she welcomes the opportunity to lend her voice to your audio description, commercial, documentary, e-learning , explainer video, live announcer, narration, Telephony (IVR or MOH) or other voice over project.

How long will my voice over take?
✅ Most projects depending on the size are completed in 24 hours or less.
What is Audio Description?
✅ The American Council for the Blind defines AD as Narration added to the soundtrack to describe important visual details that cannot be understood from the main soundtrack alone.
Audio description is a means to inform individuals who are blind or have low vision about visual content essential for comprehension. Audio description of video provides information about actions, characters, scene changes, on-screen text, and other visual content. Audio description supplements the regular audio track of a program. Audio description is usually added during existing pauses in dialogue.
When developing a successful AD program it is always recommended that you include someone who is blind or has low vision. “Nothing about us without us”.
