Robert officially started his voiceover career while at WPLJ-FM in New York City, when he landed a short read on an episode of the David Letterman Show in which Letterman famously interviewed a slightly profane songstress named Madonna.

E-Learning and corporate training narrations are among Robert's specialties. Robert delivers his voiceover recordings via MP3, FTP and overnight CD delivery, and phone patch is available.

Robert recently welcomed some prestigious new clients, including Omax Vitamin Company and George Mason University Basketball.

Roger Wesley from Omax Vitamin Company stated that "working with Robert was a pleasure, as he is professional in communications, quality of voice files, and turnaround. I would easily give Robert the highest recommendation. Our entire team, which includes Yale Physicians, was thoroughly impressed."

Richard A. Pretl, Creative Director with The Leffler Agency adds, "We are always working on an extremely tight deadline, so when I am casting voice talent, prompt turnaround is just as important as a great voice. I have found that I can always rely on Robert Jacobs to not only nail the proper tone when recording a spot, but to deliver it on time. He is a true professional."

Robert Jacobs, who has a web presence at Voices.com in addition to his own professional website, is working on many exciting new projects with government contractors and a major software developer.
