Script Timer is a simple and effective application for estimating the duration of a piece of text for any voice recording and speaking engagements. It basically helps you know how long it will take to say, at whatever pace you choose.
It is perfect for timing management and efficiency of delivery.
The unique algorithm of Script Timer examines each word individually and calculates the length of time it takes to say by the way it is pronounced. It also calculates how numbers, prices, fractions, ordinals, negative numbers, acronyms, email addresses and website addresses are said. Script Timer gives you a continually updated duration for your document as you write it.
Extensive Script Timer testing with a professional voice artist has shown it to be accurate to within 5 seconds for every minute of text. A margin of error which is acceptable in any time sensitive read.
Once the script has been created, it can be printed, or exported as a PDF in an easily readable script style format.
