Job Description

These computer voice callouts are for my DeltaGlider-XR1 and my new XR5 Vanguard ships for Orbiter, a realistic (and free) space flight simulator. The Orbiter homepage is here: http://www.orbitersim.com. Currently my XR1 has over 12,500 downloads in just over ten months since its release. The Orbiter Space Simulator and its add-on ships are freeware, and my add-on vessels for Orbiter have thousands of users from all around the world.

Currently I am using AT&T’s Natural Voices text-to-speech software to pre-generate these voice callouts as wav files, but for my new ship (the Vanguard) and the next version of my XR1 ship I wanted to replace those callouts with a real human voice instead to bring the quality up even more.

Since my XR1 ship is one of the best (and in my opinion, the best) ship available for Orbiter, the actress who performs these voice callouts will get a lot of exposure, and (if you wish it) your name will be prominently listed in the ship’s documentation as well.

Ideally I would like each callout phrase to be in a separate WAV file; however, if it is easier you can just add multiple callouts to a single wav file and then I can edit them out as separate files here using my wav editor. It’s up to you.

Below is the list of voice callouts I need along with some comments that may help you know how I want some unusual phrases pronounced. Currently there are 247 computer voice callouts that will play in-game. I will probably also need some additional follow-up work as well to add some additional voice callouts or change some.

Please find a portion of the script below for audition purposes. Full script including pronunciation guide available in attachment.
