Looking for Native Speakers that grew up, at least until 16 in:
We can pick multiple people for this project (only 1 per country of origin).
For educational software, we need a set of 200 words individually recorded. The words will be given upon hearing a sample recording provided by you.
For the sample, provide a single MP3 file with you counting: 0,1 ,2, 3,4 ,5, 6,7 ,8, 9, 10, 20, 44, 56, 67, 78, 89, 100. The MP3 should be done in a quite room, with a quality external microphone (not laptop mic).
The full project takes approximately 2 hours of time to complete. Success on this project can lead to larger word sets.
ADVICE FOR GOOD AUDIO RECORDINGS
-Use an external mic, not a imbedded laptop mic
-Noise floor. You will need excellent isolation from outside, ie, plane and traffic noise, bleed from other studios, and heating/ac noise all become an issue w/spoken word when they aren't, for example, when loud things like drums or electric gtrs are recorded.
-Dead sound. I much prefer a dead, non-reflective sound to a live sound for spoken word recording.
-A comfortable space for the author to record in, including a nice comfy chair, table for a drink, etc, perhaps a music stand for the script, and headphones. People moderate their voices better if they hear themselves so make the talent wear headphones. Be aware that as the talent reads the script the relationship of their mouth position to the mic will change, ie, they may sound off mic a bit when at the bottom of the page. Keep this in mind and consider printing fewer words per page so that their range of movement will be less as they move down the page.
-Watch out for rustling paper noises, clothing noises, etc.
-Watch out for mouth clicks and noises. We use cranberry juice to reduce mouth clicks, and it really works...I think the tartness reduces surface tension in the saliva and leads to a lot less mouth noise. Sweet foods/drinks are bad for mouth noises...ie chocolate.
