30 Minute Audio=How Many Pages?

by Shannon Tani 2 replies
Another warrior has asked me to write a report that he wants to turn into an audio presentation.

Can anyone with experience tell me approximately how many pages of writing it would take for a 30 minute audio? I realize a lot depends on how fast you're speaking and how many words per page, but I'd like a ball park figure.

    Without knowing the words per page, it would be very difficult to gauge. But, formal English is typically spoken at 100 to 120 words per minute. So a 30 minute (all speech) audio should be in the neighborhood of 3000 to 3600 words.

    If you use the old guideline of 250 words to a page, then you are looking at 12 to 15 pages.

    It is worth noting that conversational English is usually spoken at closer to 300 words per minute.

    I hope this helps
