Job Description

Imagine a young female nurse in a computer simulation. She can ask the patient questions.

We need voice over for the following questions (& possibly a few extra ones tbd soon after the bulk of the questions have been recorded).

The voice & intonation should be professional & matter-of-fact, yet kind & interested in the patient---exactly the way you yourself as a patient would prefer a nurse talked to you!

Each line must be a separate file. You must name the files according to the voice over, e.g., "How old are you?" would be named "docHowOldAreYou.mp3". We will send the list of file names. It is important to type these names exactly as specified, otherwise they will not be understood by our system.

It is best if you can upload the final files to your own ftp site under some name, say "area9" in 44kHz mp3 format.

We need the recordings by Monday (February 19) morning our time (10am CET), which probably means you need to record them at the latest Sunday night (February 18) your time (assuming you are in the U. S.). To make sure there will be no problems, we would like you to upload 10 samples that we can check Friday, i.e., your time Friday morning.

Many thanks for your help! If this works out, we would want to use your help in future projects as well. We will hopefully be making many more simulators, needing voice over for both male & female nurses, doctors & patients.

Kind Regards,
Tommy Olesen
Area9 Healthcare
