Mark KnowlesR&D Manager, Elekta

I used Play It By Ear’s audio narration and voiceover services on several occasions and always found their work to be exemplary; they always delivered on time, often to tight deadlines. I would happily recommend them.

Sue WhiteThe Open University

I have been very pleased with the website videos. For a small business they lent credibility to our internet proposition, as potential customers get to ‘meet’ the business owners and I feel this aids them in their purchase decision process.

Alan RooneyOwner, The Cultural Experience

We were very impressed by how easy Play It By Ear made the process and are extremely happy with the results. I would certainly recommend them and expect to use them again in the future.

Jon TerryPartner, Blackman Terry

Brilliant Job – the website hit rate has gone right up since we included the video on the website

Chris SmithOwner, The Corner House Hotel

Fantastic, you nailed it, we like that a lot! Well done! Nice job!

Lee RoseFounder and technical director, Voipfone

It was so good that you understood quickly what I wanted and that you were flexible and relaxed whilst being professional at the same time.

Sharon BoltFounder, Good Dogs

Excellent service!
