A great way to continuously attract the listener’s attention when reading through a script to accentuate certain key words. It is your responsibility to identify which words in the script are most attractive and then focus on them. You should circle or underline these words with a red pen so that you will be able to see them coming up in the script. Be sure to begin each sentence with a high pitch. Doing so will provide you with a nice natural range for your voice to work within. Additionally, this will prevent an unnatural spike in pitch when it comes time to accentuate those key words.

Another great point of focus when reading through a script is to consciously avoid umms and ahhs. Instead, leave a short pause in your speech. That pause will increase the expectations of the audience and prompt them to keep listening!
