“Hi! I’m Rita Barrington, a freelance female voice artist. I chose to work in the voiceover business because I love using my vocal talent when creating a rich variety of characters and accents. I am told my voice has mature tonal quality that attracts and keeps the listeners’ attention. As a female voice actor, my main aim is to deliver your spoken word project in a friendly professional manner.
Be assured, your voiceover or spoken word project will be in sound voiceover hands when I am in the recording studio!
My skill as a voice actor and voice over artist developed during a RADA Radio Acting course, which I attended in London during the late 90’s at the launch of my voice-over career.
Since then, I have gained much valuable experience in the voiceover and spoken word recording industry through narration of unabridged fiction for BBC AudioBooks.
I have easy access to a professional recording studio for recording voiceovers or other spoken word performances. The voice over studio I use is also equipped with ISDN (using Audio TX Communicator, which is compatible with all professional codecs) for directed voiceover or spoken word recording sessions.
I am based in Weymouth, Dorset, UK.
Email me or give me a call on 07776 422309.
Recording testimonials for Rita Barrington
“Balmaha Bears” by Carole Meara (Childrens’ fiction)
“I very much liked what I heard in your samples because I know that, in the absence of a physical image – as on a radio programme – an actress either has the vocal presence (and technique) or she does not. You shone out among all the others.”
Keith Salmon – Audiobook Producer
“Ms. Barrington used her own voice well and invented an array of character voices to excitingly portray a wide range of different animals and character types within a short space of time.”

“Maisie Dobbs” by Jacqueline Winspear for BBC Audiobooks
“British Actress, Barrington’s fully voiced reading is masterful; this is a gem!”
“The Narrator’s range adds to the strong sense of time and place, hitting all the right notes, from the aristocratic Lady Rowan to the French master detective to Maisie’s cockney assistant.”
(Hingham Public Sound Library, USA )
“Rita Barrington’s narration creates a vivid sense of time, place and character. . .Barrington’s voices help the listener keep straight the many characters. . .”
“The audio version of Maisie Dobbs is very well done. The reader’s wonderful British accent enhanced my perception of Maisie’s intelligence and manners. I was also impressed when her voice took on a detached, almost dream-like, quality as wartime events were recalled.”
“I am so glad I went this route, as the reader (Rita Barrington) was outstanding! The characters sprang to life and I was completely engrossed in the mystery, as well as the surrounding details of Maisie’s past.”

I’m late to the party, but I just discovered the CD sound recording of Maisie Dobbs in my public library. Have nearly finished listening to it now and I just had to write and tell you what an exceptionally wonderful job you did as narrator. So many distinct voices, and you shift between them so seamlessly. I am awestruck and so appreciative. I have my fingers crossed that the next book in the series is read by you. Congratulations on a job well done!

Hello, Ms. Barrington ~ Your voice is incredible, and I’m so glad you read the audiobook of Maisie Dobbs. I can only applaud the other remarks on your site which have eloquently expressed what I would like to say about your narration. I would add that your singing voice, so full and note perfect, added a much appreciated element to the audio experience. My hearing is sensitive, and most attempts to vocalize song in audiobooks are painful. I enjoyed your singing very much and wished there had been more.
If I can find a way to search for books by narrator, I will follow your voice into other readings. Thank you.
