Remote monitoring of Narration Recording Session

Should you monitor narration sessions live to ensure that the narration performance has proper emphasis?

Many narrators use a live  link that allows the client to monitor the performance in real-time in order to provide performance directions.  This is a useful tool for directors that have very specific vision of the narration performance.  However, this usually adds to the overall duration and cost of the narration session (and adds to the labor hours of the director /producer). This can be important during high stakes projects, but for smaller level projects is is often not necessary.

In most cases for non-broadcast applications such as elearning,  remote narrators given proper performance instructions within the script can produce an acceptable performance without live direction.  Personally, I find that I can concentrate more on the performance if I do not have live monitoring.
