Japanese term or phrase: voiceover service
Sorry to post this non-translation question but I need to know urgently what constitutes a voiceover service? If somebody requests a voiceover service, is a script normally provided so that you just read whatever is on the script?

If anybody knows the market rate (Japanese) for voiceover service, it will be a great help!

Thanks!

Explanation:
I've done a few of them for local cable companies and scripts were provided... but I've heard that some agencies don't. Personally, I think you should charge more if they're not giving you the script to read from :P
