Job Description

What I need done:

Please read through these three paragraphs. I have two projects you may bid on.

Job One

This involves recording 9 lectures for a textbook to help advanced English as a Second Language learners. Each lecture is around 300 words and as you expect should be read in a clear, mature, and professional manner. The pace of each should be that of a typical, straight read (around 75 words per 30 seconds). I expect each lecture to be around 90 to 150 seconds depending on its length and your style of speaking. I’ve included example audio of what I want.

Job Two

This involves recording 18 lectures and 12 conversations for the same textbook. This is a little tricky. I am looking for someone who has another voice over actor he or she knows of the opposite sex to work with to produce the conversations and lectures: I want 9 lectures with a man’s voice, 9 lectures with a woman’s voice, and 12 conversations between a man and a woman with no post-production work on my end.

The lectures are as described in the first paragraph. There are 6 conversations of 200 words and 6 near 300 words. These conversations take place between two university students, so I want young, natural, calm voices (It would be great if you could slightly modify your voice when recording for the lecture and the conversation). Conversations should be read at a faster pace (around 95 words per 30 seconds) since they are intended to be conversational. Each recording should take around 70 to 100 seconds depending on its length. I have included example audio of what I want.

What I have:

I have all of the transcripts completed and example audio for you to follow.

What the voice talent will provide:

Job One

9 separate audio tracks of 9 separate lectures, fully edited and complete.

Job Two

18 audio tracks of 18 lectures: 9 in a woman’s voice and 9 in a male’s.
12 audio tracks of 12 conversations, each between a man and a woman.

Other Requirements:

These recordings are for instructional purposes to non-native English speakers. It’s important for a strong emphasis on clarity and appropriate tonal emphasis on important key words that carry meaning in the conversations and lectures.

Specific Expertise:

I need to hire individuals who can create speech intended for instruction. Tone, inflection, and appropriate pauses are important.

Timeframe for delivery:

I would like this done within 7 days of the date you are issued the job.

Final words:

This is my first time using, so I hope I posted all the right details. I’ve done this before but in recording studios. Looking forward to working with you.
