I run a new, very small, tech startup that specializes in Speech Recognition software applications. Our first product is an Assessment tool for the public school system to allow them to measure the correctness of student’s English language pronunciation. Here is a link to a rough explanation of the technology [url removed, login to view] .
The pilot product we are putting together needs someone to record the short passages. It is a total of four pages, large print almost triple spaced. About 800 words total. I have no idea if we can afford professional talent like yourself but I wanted to ask.
I am looking for a female with a young sounding, upbeat energetic voice that if we were talking about singing would be in the alto-soprano range. This higher pitch voice comes through better when the software is deployed. Need you to record separate wav files for each passage. For the right person this is a few hours work. If it catches on, there will be much more follow on work.
