Job Description

We are a non-profit state agency that is developing eLearning courses that are geared towards young adults with disabilities. The goal of the courses is to teach independence skills. This particular course teaches basic Financial Literacy Skills. It is comprised of 4 modules: Financial Planning, Budgets, Your Money and Buying & Leasing a Car. The ideal voice should match Juan who is the peer mentor in the course. He is a 21 year old happy, pleasant, Latino male who grew up in the US. You will see photos of Juan in the course script.

Each page in the course provides the users the option to turn audio on to listen, rather than read the course. Each page is typically 50-125 words long, although a some of the pages are less than 10 words. The entire course consists of approxinately 230 pages. Speaking from experience, it is probably best to record the audio in chunks of 20 pages per audio file. A short silence will be needed at the end of each page to assist in breaking apart the recording into individual pages.

Voice Recording Guidelines
1. The voice should have the tone of a peer or friend providing advice. The tone should be warm, friendly, upbeat, helpful and conversational.

2. For our audience, it is important that the pace is slow enough so that everyone can listen and comprehend what is being said. The course is designed so that people who have difficulty reading will be able to turn audio on and listen to course instead of reading it. Some of these people may have a cognitive impairment and may need extra time to process what is being said. It is critical that the pace of the audio is slow enough to process the information.

3. The voice must match the script 100%. Extra care should be taken to read each word accurately. Words should not be eliminated or substituted with another similar word.

4. The volume and settings must be consistent for each page in the recordings and between audio files. That means if a page in the course has a mistake and needs to be re-done; the new audio file must match the original volume and voice quality 100%.

5. A quality check must be performed before sending the audio files to us.

PDFs of the four modules are attached. The PDF will show you how the course actually looks - each page in the course must be narrated.
