Stumbled across this list of recommendations on how much voice actors should generally be paid. The focus is on indie productions, though productions with a substantial budget get mentioned as well.

Hopefully someone finds this helpful / interesting.
Summary of what I remember:
Productions that can afford to book a studio, or are big enough to pay by the hour, would generally pay between $100US and $250US per hour.
Per-line rates (recommended for indie games) are recommended to be around $1-4US per line.
Paying by word happens sometimes (think audio books). $0.10-0.30US recommended.
There are also recommendations for cases where you'd pay for hours of resulting audio, and how much to pay for editing the data, etc.
