Audio & Video Guidelines

Quiet Room

Please make sure that you are in a quiet room without background noise e.g other people talking, washing machines, televisions etc. Remember to put phones on silent and turn notifications/vibration off.

Microphone

We recommend using either a lapel microphone or a podcasting microphone however if you don’t have access to either of them then a quiet room with your device’s built in microphone will suffice.

A lapel microphone should be attached to the top of your clothing so that it is as close as possible to your mouth and then plugged into a computer, phone or tablet. Please be careful for any ruffling or movement with your clothes. It is recommended to record a test and listen back before recording the real content.

A podcasting microphone can be set up on a desk or table. Please make sure that you are sat close enough to it and that you also do a test record to make sure the levels sound good and your voice is not too quiet.

Seating (video only)

We would love you to sit somewhere where you feel relaxed perhaps a sofa or an armchair. We are trying to create a relaxed atmosphere.

Camera and Lighting (video only)

Please secure your computer, phone or tablet so that it is fixed on a table or tripod and not moving then raise it so that the camera is at eye-level with you and not facing upwards or downwards. Please make sure that phones or tablets are in a horizontal orientation. Try to position yourself so that there is no window behind you and so that your whole face and shoulders are within the frame. If possible put a lamp on your desk to add a bit of soft light to your face.

File Upload

IMPORTANT: In order to reduce the file size and upload time we recommend watching this video. For an Android phone, you can change the resolution by going into the camera and then clicking the three dots in the top right-hand corner. Alternatively, you can use Zoom to record yourself and send us the recording.
