When you are developing some sort of slideshows such as Articulate or Captivate presentations with voice-over and you want it to be more formal but you still want to keep it conversational and easy listening, there are some ways to prepare the scripts that like. For example, you can:

  • have an instructional design to work with the subject matter expert to draft out the scripts according to the learning objectives and the actual information on the slide;
  • let other people to review the scripts;
  • or even hire a professional writer to revise the scripts…

But I find a way to improve the scripts even faster: let the subject matter experts read out loud and document the changes they make naturally! Here are some real life examples:

Original written version: … common complex genetic disorders are common disorders occurring in the population that tend to “run in families” which is the first  line of evidence that these disorders may have genetic factors contributing to their etiology. Despite an increased risk of disease in the relatives of those affected, there is no clear pattern of inheritance implying that these disorders are not controlled by single gene or oligogenic (few genes) disorders

Read out loud version:… common complex genetic disorders are common disorders occurring in the population that tend to “run in families” which is the first  line of evidence that these disorders may have genetic factors contributing to their etiology. Despite the fact that these disorders run in families, there is no clear pattern of inheritance implying that these disorders are not controlled by single gene…

Original written version:… it is more difficult to think about heritability of a binary – yes affected, no not affected – disease trait. To estimate heritability we assume that there is an unobserved liability to disease…

Read out loud version:… it is more difficult to think about heritability of a binary disease trait. By binary, I mean that we classify as being yes affected or no not affected. To estimate heritability we assume that there is an unobserved liability to disease…

Original written version:… to estimate heritability we assume that there is an unobserved liability to disease. For example, the medical condition hypertension is given to people with high blood pressure…

Read out loud version:… to estimate heritability we assume that there is an unobserved liability to disease. Let me try to explain what I mean by liability. For example, the medical condition hypertension is given to people with high blood pressure…

Original written version:… it seems reasonable to assume a normal distribution, because experience tells us that most things we measure have a normal distribution, and a normal distribution – with key features of being uni-modal and symmetric – is consistent with multiple underlying risk factors…

Read out loud version: … it seems reasonable to assume a normal distribution, because experience tells us that most things we measure do have a normal distribution, and a normal distribution. And the key feature of this distribution is uni-modal and symmetric. And this is consistent with many underlying risk factors…

Original written version: … just to be clear the analogy isn’t saying that schizophrenia and height have genetic risk variants in common

Read out loud version: … just to be clear the analogy isn’t saying that schizophrenia and height have the same genetic risk factors

You may have noticed that the text in red in the original written version has been naturally changed to be of a more conversational style when it is spoken out by the subject matter experts. They tend to modify the text when they are trying to convey the meaning of the content. They are different from voice-over artists because they know more about the subject matter and can easily pick up the right language to articulate in the natural way.

So do you think the text in blue is more learner friendly than that in red? I’d like to hear your opinion.
