London, ON, Canada, 2006/11/14 - Announcing the Voices.com Top 100, powered by VoiceRank™ technology, a ranking engine that organizes talent by newest, highest rated, and most favored..
In a field as competitive and fast-paced as voiceovers, there isn't much time to sift through voices to find the most qualified candidate for voice over jobs. Voices.com announced today their new VoiceRank™ technology would provide a solution to this global challenge.
It became clear to the company that there needed to be a way for the people who use the web service to hire voice actors directly to recommend their favorite voices to each other, thus saving their peers time while rewarding and referring voice actors with whom they have worked.
First is the "New" list. These are the newest voice actors who have registered at the website. It's a way for them to gain some immediate exposure and have others rate their demos for professionalism.
The second list is called "Top Rated". The Top Rated list is generated by the new VoiceRank™ technology, a ranking algorithm that's fair, flexible and trustworthy.
VoiceRank™ is based upon a combination of the number of ratings voice actors have received, their overall average rating, and the completeness of their profiles. The current list reflects how voice actors have been rated regarding their auditions as well as former feedback ratings.
Finally, the third list is called "Favorites". People in this list have been most favored by clients. Clients can ‘favorite’ voice actors by clicking the "Add to Favorites" link in the search results, via audition submissions or on voice actor websites at Voices.com.
Voices.com CEO, David Ciccarelli says, “VoiceRank™ updates daily to help identify the newest movers and shakers at Voices.com. As the rankings are determined by our community, the results are organic, rewarding and recognizing voice actors for their work.”
