Professionally recorded greetings FAQs:
Do you supply suggested scripts?
- Yes, there are guidelines and script help for auto attendant greetings, voice prompts, and music and messages on hold for a wide range of industries including message samples. Click here for script help.
What type of files can I use?
- For best quality, MP3 files should be 16 kHz mono. WAV files of 8 kHz mono are also acceptable. Playback quality will depend on the user's codec. If the codec is narrowband (G7.11), then it will playback at 8 kHz. If wideband (Opus or G7.22) is available, then 16 kHz will be used.
How do I upload the recordings to my phone system?
- Admins can update recordings at the IVR and call queue level. For IVRs, access Auto-Receptionist settings in the online admin portal. Prompts can be imported directly from your computer on the Prompts Library tab. Once prompts have been uploaded, they can be assigned to IVR menus. For call queues, access Group settings in the online admin portal and select the call queue to be edited. Under the Greetings and Hold Music tab, admins can upload recordings to the Call Queue Greeting, Hold Music, and Interrupt Prompt sections. Learn more.
- Users can also upload their own recordings for their personal greetings and hold music. From the user's online account settings, navigate to Greetings and Call Screening. Users can upload recordings to the User Greeting, Connecting Message, Audio While Connecting, and Hold Music sections. These user-level prompts can also be bulk managed with user templates.

Why is the end of my professional voice recording cut off?
- It may not be. Check for a setting called “Fade Out” in the program you're listening to the recording in, such as iTunes. If this is the case, turn it off to hear your full recording.

- Greetings and voice prompts are £50 for every 75 words.
- On-hold messages start at £99 and include the first 100 words plus one background music track.
- Background music tracks costs £40 for each additional 100 words.
How long does it take to get my recordings?
- The standard turnaround time is 3–4 business days.
- Rush delivery is available in 1–2 business days. It costs £50 for the first 75 words and £25 for every 75 words thereafter.
