Do you remember a debate we had some time ago over the proper spelling of the word voice over?
We've been informed by an established editor in the publishing business that the spelling "voice-over" is the way to go!
A number of dictionaries also agree.

How do you spell out the long form of the acronym VO?
Heavyweight Merriam-Webster settles the debate with their definition here:
Voice-over - noun \ËˆvoÌ‡is-ËŒÅ-vÉ™r\
a : the voice of an unseen narrator speaking (as in a motion picture or television commercial) b : the voice of a visible character (as in a motion picture) expressing unspoken thoughts
: a recording of a voice-over
The Oxford Dictionary defines voice-over as:
a piece of narration in a movie or broadcast, not accompanied by an image of the speaker.
