authentic, accent free, sophisticated, feminin

Voice Description

Authentic, accent-free, sophisticated German as well Continental European English (World English) for educational, corporate and industrial work, museum audio tours, all ages, soft pitch, beautifully accented European English, warm, confident, perfectly aligned vocal chords for speech recognition software. My German voice can be heard in pretty much every museum in the United States as well as on Lufthansa and Continental Airlines and German language courses for Berlitz and Rosetta Stone and the German version of "Hooked on Phonics" ("Verückt nach Lesen").

Internationally active companies (i.e. Pfizer, World Health Organization, The Internet Society) seek me out for my European-style English to give themselves a global image.
