What is a voice-over?

Voice-overs are used in commercials, TV programmes or films, documentaries, etc when it is not necessary to see the person speaking, to get your message across.They are also used when the lead or featured cast member is not able to do a required accent, language, etc, but their 'look' really 'sells' the product being advertised, so a voice-artist is brought in to do the dialogue / monologue in post production. Different types of character voices (used in animations, chidren's stories, etc), accents are needed in the entertainment industry.Different languages are also called for.
