Job Description

This is an interactive simulation that uses video game technology to teach medical concepts to physicians.

Since this work is for a proprietary software application that is not a publicly available, an NDA must be signed before work can commence.

Paula is the third of three virtual patients who the doctors will interact with as they learn about diagnosing multiple sclerosis. Note that even though Paula is Hispanic (a factor that's important from a medical diagnosis perspective), we're NOT looking for Paula to have a very pronounced Latino accent. It's important that she not come across as a caricature or stereo-type - please keep it subtle and low-key.

The attached script includes a character description as well as some general directorial comments (blue text). Past experience indicates that recording and editing time combined usually amounts to about one hour.

We're looking for lines to be recorded in high/CD-quality WAV format with a couple of takes on each line (file names in grey text).

Final recorded lines are subject to medical-legal team review, so some pickups are usually required after the original takes are submitted.
