How vocal were dinosaurs?

Hi everyone, I'm brand new here. I'm going to San Jose State University next year, and I love dinosaurs. Always have. Thinking about possibly pursuing a career in paleontology. I own lots of documentaries on the subject, and I've seen yet more. One thing about the films make me skeptical. Every organization that attempts to reproduce a dinosaur always makes them very vocal. They're always roaring, grunting, or shrieking. Very few animals today are like that, especially large animals that more closely resemble prehistoric proportions. I know film companies just want to make money and sell their documentary, but shouldn't they focus more on making it realistic, even if it's not as exciting? How loud were dinosaurs really? Thanks!
