Job Description

I have published a 6min SlideCast at

Currently, the voice is mine (a non-native English speaker) and the result isn't that great.

The goal of this job would be to re-record the voice with a neutral US English accent (eventually adjusting the text if it needs to)

I am attaching the text script to this project.

To be delivered
- a 6min MP3 file, sound must be very clean

Please provide sample audio records if you apply for this job.


Sample from attached script:

Hello, I am Joannes Vermorel, the lead of the forecasting technology at Lokad.

In this slidecast, I am going to give you a small overview of my company.

Lokad is an online statistical forecasting provider.

In short, companies are sending their data to us, and we give them forecasts back.

But let's start with the pig picture.

Achieving good forecasts is a cornerstone of profitability for many industries such as retail, manufacturing and services.

If you happen to be a retailer, optimizing inventory levels is critical.
