VO BOSS Podcast: Voice and AI – Paul Stefano

In this episode, Anne welcomes special guest Paul Stefano to talk about using AI voices to your advantage, licensing, and working with ethical companies. Paul ― a voice talent and co-host of the VO Meter Podcast ― talks to the BOSSES about how to approach AI and use your synthetic voice to benefit your business. Did you know there may come a time when AI could help track unauthorized use of voices? AI is here to stay. Flexibility and the ability to pivot are essential skills for successful entrepreneurs. Listen to these BOSSES and get inspired to think of ways to grow your business in our evolving industry.


  • Paul and Sean Daeley host the VO Meter Podcast
  • Paul is over a voice-over recording gear geek!
  • Paul is always at the cutting edge of technological advances in voiceover
  • If you get out in front of AI voices, and license your voice, you can supplement your income
  • When you license your voice it should only be licensed for a particular time, product, usage, and ideally, you renew these
  • Unless you are getting paid at least 7 or 8 figures, you should not accept a job in perpetuity
  • Paul works with Vocal ID, which started as a company focused on bringing synthetic voices to those who cannot speak
  • Vocal ID has continued to create synthetic voices of voice actors, in an ethical way, taking into account usage and placement
  • Vocal ID will also pitch your AI voice to companies that might want to work with you
  • If you’ve captured your voice with Vocal ID, you will also have it just in case something happens to you
  • AI technologies will soon be able to help us track where our voices are being used and cut down on unlawful usage
  • Veritone has software that tracks audio, this could theoretically be used to protect our voices
  • Entrepreneurs evolve with the market. AI is here, and we should work with it
  • Working with AI is a good forward-thinking business decision
  • If a company needs a voiceover to sound human, they will hire a human voice actor
  • Our voices have more than likely been captured for years without our consent. This is a way to have control over the process
