My name is Karen Jacobsen and I am also known as "The GPS Girl" as my speaking voice is in GPS systems in millions of cars all over the world giving directions to drivers. Is "Australian Karen" telling you where to go?
Originally from Australia, I have been a Professional Voice Over Artist for twenty years, and as well as the voice in your GPS, I have been the announcer for the Aussie hair care commercials in the United States for the past five years, the number one Mobile telephone company in Singapore, Sofitel hotel voice systems, and thousands of television, radio and corporate advertising campaigns.
If you're in Australia my voice may also be familiar to you from Centrelink or as the Telstra Talking Text voice.
