Scriptwriting and Recording Techniques for Audacity
Writing Audio Scripts
Writing for narration for Audacity is really about writing words for the ear. Someone once said that audio listeners aren't one audience of thousands; they're thousands of audiences of one. You should always write with "you" in a personal style, as if your were speaking directly to the person listening. Audio narration must sound natural. If you want to know how that works, record yourself speaking about a topic you want to write a script about. Transcribe it, clean it up and record it again.
Use short sentences, but vary their length. Stick to one idea per sentence when possible. Make each new idea flow logically out of the previous one. Make sure your audio flows.
Check everything you write by reading it aloud. A sentence might look just fine on paper, but it could read awkwardly in the studio. Always check what you've written by reading to yourself aloud or preferable to someone else.
Here are some other suggestions to follow when writing your script. Remember, you're writing for the ear, not for print.
