Today, there are great opportunities for young people with good and melodic voice skills to work as dubbing artists in films, dramas, radio, television, advertisements, documentaries, animated films, etc.
Voice skills
 An important qualification to become a dubbing artist is a catchy voice.  Anyone who has a voice and a grasp of words can take the initiative to become a dubbing artist or a voice over artist.  With a good voice, if you qualify for 12th or senior secondary, the path to a better career will be easier for you.  Given the growing demand for dubbing artists, there are a number of institutes offering short-term and certificate courses in this field.  These courses provide technical knowledge of voice over to the students.  This course can be used to help you improve your voice.
 At present, there is hardly an area where technology is not used.  Obviously, to become a dubbing artist, you need to have technical knowledge related to your work.  You need to remember how far or how close the mic should be when recording and the dubbing methods must be carefully understood.  There are two methods of recording in the industry.  First paragraph dubbing and then lip-syncing.
 In para dubbing, the artist has to record without paying attention to the audio or video, while in lip-syncing, the speaker has to read the lips of the character and record the pronunciation.  You have to understand these methods carefully.
Possibilities
 As a dubbing artist you can find opportunities to work in Akashbani, Doordarshan, various TV channels, dramas, radio, advertisements, documentaries, animated films etc.  It may be a little difficult for you to look for opportunities in the beginning but once you make your voice known to the people, there are no job opportunities for you. There will be no shortage.
Earnings
 As far as earning is concerned, you can earn Rs. 10,000 .  You just have to be more discriminating with the help you render toward other people.
 Some special features that make the journey easier
 In addition to good sound, dubbing artists must have sound quality, clear pronunciation and a strong grasp of language.  In addition, the dubbing artist has to change his voice according to the character or situation, such as adapting his voice to the place of emotion or comedy.  So you have to learn the art of bringing high-pitch and low-pitch to your voice as needed.
