How do you read the date 01/20/2018 aloud?
Did you read it as one, twenty, twenty-eighteen…
Did you read it as January 20th, twenty-eighteen?
How about January 20th, two-thousand and eighteen?
Zero one, two zero, two zero one eight?
Or one, twenty, two-thousand eighteen?
To get the date read exactly how you want it in your voice over recording, write how you’d like it said in your script. That way you’ll never have to worry about needing a re-record simply because your voice over actor didn’t say the date the way you prefer.
