After a dialogue of nearly 80 comments, we have decided to change one aspect of how VoiceMatch works.
We listened to you and reconsidered showing clients the VoiceMatch score in audition responses. As a result, the VoiceMatch scores will not be displayed in talent responses.
Hear more in today's VOX Daily.
Thank you for your comments and for sharing your concerns. Thank you also to everyone who expressed interest in being a beta tester or who showed support for VoiceMatch.
David and I have been discussing all of what has been shared and we are reevaluating how this will work. The original concept came from talent wanting to know how well matched they were. We did see a parallel between how this could also benefit clients but they don't need to see a VoiceMatch score for this feature to be implemented. As you've noted, it is in the best interest of the talent for the client not to see the score and we respect your position and agree with you.
We have decided that we will not show VoiceMatch scores to clients. From what I understand this decision will alleviate the majority of concerns expressed by most of you here today. I apologize if this possibility was upsetting and we are moving in a different direction with VoiceMatch based upon your feedback.
You will still see your VoiceMatch as it relates to you on a per job basis. We trust this will be helpful and that you'll be able to use it as a gauge for opportunities that come your way.
Thank you again for joining the conversation and for letting us know how you feel. We are thrilled to have such passionately involved customers and thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us.
With warm regards,
