"...Over the years Sylva recorded a variety of different [telephone] announcements for the Society. She is a professional speaker whose accent is crisp and clear and whose words flow smoothly and are easy to understand. We felt her voice was a good fit for the image we were trying to portray to our customers and constituents. I am confident that Sylva would be successful in any type of similar voice recording work, and would recommend her without hesitation.American Bible Society
