Request revision


Request a revision to a read. VoiceBunny will notify the talent of the requested changes. As long as there are no major changes to the script, we'll revise it for free, otherwise you'll just pay for the words or characters that changed that changed. You can find out the price for revisions using the revision quote method. We will still save the original versions of each recording for you to access at anytime.

To test this method, request a revision of a test read generated by creating a test project.
