Default 30 Minute Audio=How Many Pages?

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.

Love,
Shannon

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.

(Sources referenced: effective talks: material 137 and Word count - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )

I hope this helps
