Job Description

Hi, I am a looking for various voices for a PhD research project on attitudes towards English accents in Japan.

I am looking for a caucasian adult male who is a US citizen.

The accent o speak with a broad working class American accent (eg, broad East Coast: Boston, broad New Jersey or broad Pacific West-Coast: LA, San Fran etc).

Prices are negotiable. The script consists of three short passages (less than a page).

Looking for voices speaking 'neutrally', at an average pace.

Price is negotiable.

I would like the three passages recorded on separate tracks, with 2 sec. pauses before and after each track.

Script: (no need to read headings).

Passage 1 (Don't read heading)

Good morning, everybody. Beautiful Monday morning, isn’t it? Welcome to today’s information session. To start, some important announcements: there’s free tea and coffee upstairs, and toilets are on level one. Today’s meeting will go from 9 to 5. After today’s session, everybody’s welcome to join us for light refreshments. Finally, there’s no smoking in any part of the building. If you want to smoke, you need to go outside. Alright, let’s get started…

Passage 2 (Don't read heading)

Last Saturday, I went to a Japanese restaurant around 8:00. It was my friend’s birthday, and we tried Japanese food. It was my first time; I’d never tried raw fish before. Even though, I had a good time, I had to leave early. My father has been in hospital. He’s okay now though...

Passage 3 (Don't read heading)

I usually watch TV before I go to bed. Last night, I was watching TV. There was a show on famous tourist attractions in Japan like Disneyland. My friend visited Nara and Kyoto last year, during cherry blossom season, he went to many places. The only problem was - when he was coming back home, the airline lost his bags!
