"Using Ad Studio's voiceover recording service is seamless. All you have to do is to draft a script and select a voiceover plus background music, all within the platform. Once the request is submitted, it usually takes us less than half a day to receive a full ad blended with the selected background music. This tool is super helpful and a great value-add, especially for most organisations without the resources or experience to create audio ads."
