O-TON - What is it?

O-Ton is a term from journalism and media production that refers to a faithful reproduction of spoken statements. O-sound comes from the term “original sound” and is used to reproduce the authentic voice of a person or event without it being affected by translation or reproduction by another person. It is particularly important to ensure the integrity and credibility of media reports and to ensure that viewers or listeners can understand what people and events are saying in their original context.

What should you pay attention to?

There are some important things to look for when using O-Tone:

  • Integrity: It is important that the original sound is reproduced authentically and faithfully. Alterations or edits to the original sound can compromise the integrity and credibility of the statements and thus the entire media production.
  • Context: It should always be used in the right context. Individual statements or sections of original sound can easily be taken out of context, which can distort their meaning. It is therefore important to use it in full and put it in the right context.
  • Language: It is important to consider the language and dialect of the speaker when using it to ensure that the statements are understandable to the audience.
  • Rights: It is important to make sure you have the rights to use original sound before using it in a media production. This means that you must get permission from the speaker or owner before using it.
  • Shortening: O-tones can sometimes be very long and may need to be shortened in order to be used in a media production. It is important to be careful that shortening does not compromise the context and integrity of the statements.

Sources for original sounds

There are a few ways to find the right sources for original sound:

  1. Interviews: One option is to conduct interviews with people who can provide testimony on a particular topic.
  2. Archival material: There are many archives that preserve original sound from various events and people. These archival materials can be a valuable resource.
  3. Live events: O-sound can be recorded, even from live events such as speeches, lectures or press conferences.
  4. Social media: There are now also many original sound sources on social media platforms such as YouTube and Twitter. However, it is important to make sure that you have the rights to use this material before you use it.
  5. Press agencies: Press agencies often provide access to original sound material of various events and people. They can be a good source.

It is important to carefully check if the source is credible and trustworthy and if you have the rights to use the material before you use it.
