While doing voice over isn't necessarily the easiest gig out there, keeping your eyes on the copy shouldn't be a difficult task... that being said, you'd be surprised by just how many people stray from the script!
In a recent podcast by Nancy Wolfson, she noted that voice over is an open book exam, and given that fact, why would someone risk their read by taking their eyes off the copy?
Take a listen for yourself and be a fly on the wall during one of Nancy's private voice over coaching sessions.

When you're reading straight off the page, the potential for errors or slippage is greatly reduced. When you take your eyes off the copy or cover the script with your hand, boy oh boy are you in for it!
Gain some insight on why keeping your eyes on the copy is so important and a greater appreciation for how tightly connected your voice should be to the written word.
