The process of creating an oral history is narrated by the mouth, listened to by the ear, and finally recorded. Although the threshold of oral history is not high, the process of creating oral history can make better use of the art of audible language and can record a piece of richer and more comprehensive humanistic information. The art of the spoken word is mainly used in two ways in the field of oral history: on the one hand, it is used by the interviewer when communicating with the subject, and on the other hand, it is used in the re-creation and presentation of the oral content. The growth path of creators of audio language arts in oral history is also diversified, which can be cultivated by selecting outstanding talents with language quality in the discipline of oral history, selecting qualified interviewers from the existing professionals with various disciplinary backgrounds, and cultivating talents with oral history preferences from the broadcasting and hosting arts majors.
