Job Description

OVERVIEW:
This audio will be used in a fully interactive strategy game designed to teach the immune system to high school and university students.

Since these voice-overs will be used in a proprietary commercial software application, an NDA must be signed before work can commence.

The Computer Guide is an omniscient personality that explains scientific concepts to the player as they are encountered. She also provides motivation by commenting on the player’s performance as they struggle against the many challenges encountered during the game.

Description:
The Computer character is definitely female and speaks English with little or no discernible national or regional accent.

The Computer character is brilliant, articulate and calm, though not completely dispassionate – she’s not above letting a little condescension or disappointment creep into her voice when she has to point out where and how the player has really screwed up a task that’s been assigned to them.

Since the Computer is not actually ‘human’ or even ‘alive’ in the conventional sense, her speaking style should have a precisely-articulated, slightly synthetic cadence, perhaps inflecting a word or line here and there in an odd, artificial way. This does not mean that we’re looking for a completely flat, emotionless, or personality-free read however; just something that, every once in a while, is odd enough to remind the player that they’re dealing with an artificial intelligence.

In the interest of retaining creative control, a representative of Syandus Inc. will want to ‘sit in’ on the final recording sessions (via a patch line or phone link) to provide direction and immediate feedback on context, pronunciation, characterization, etc.

The script should recorded in high/CD-quality WAV format with a couple of takes on each line).

Final recorded lines are subject to internal and focus group review, so some pickups are usually required after the original takes are submitted.
