Project Main Details

British Accent Female for one hour eLearning 
Note: Audition not required. If you have an appropriate sample to point us to, that will work just as well.

We are a relatively small company with a Fortune 500 client. We currently have long-term working relationships with other voiceover artists on similar projects, but our client has a new request. . .

We are specifically, and only, looking for an experienced, female voice with a native British accent.

The project is an eLearning program that introduces a highly-technical and specialized software product.

We are looking for experience, quality, and professionalism.

There will be some Oil & Gas as well as physics and mathematical terms. We'll provide pronunciation help in the scripts - and by phone any time.

Style should be corporate, history-channel or BBC sounding, with a European/British accent since the product will mostly be sold in Europe.

The only place music will be needed is for the 15-second "splash screen" at the beginning of the program. No need for music in the sample script.

We will be submitting selected voices to our client for review. There is a strong possibility of a lot of ongoing work.

We will write and send scripts and expect the files we receive to be ready to plug in with our eLearning. Therefore, we prefer someone with aptitude to edit, produce, segment, and upload her own recordings (or have someone seamlessly do this behind the scenes for her).

We don't expect it, but we will welcome script suggestions if something "sounds" strange or doesn't make sense. At the same time, we won't fault you if we write an awkward sentence.

There will likely be edits after we submit the product to our client. We fully expect to pay for re-records and changes, but we want to mention it so it's expected that "done" really means "in review" and "might be changed."

Files can be in MP3, Wav, or possibly other standard formats. We have a site for uploading, but are fine if you use yours.

Script Details

[Non-spoken, Note to Artist: When you encounter the parenthetical info, please speak it a bit faster - and perhaps upbeat? - since the listener has to mentally tie that long string back to what it's describing.] 
Sample script provided for auditions:

In the example onscreen, you are looking at a traditional amplitude map on the left. . .and a 30 hertz *********** amplitude map on the right.

Both are only showing one frequency (or one color in the rainbow if you’re thinking in terms of the white-light, prism, rainbow metaphor).

However. . . *********** actually created amplitude tuning maps from 0 to 60 hertz - each showing unique characteristics of the channel (that is to say, the thickness).

On the screen, adjust the “frequency knob” by clicking it to show *********** results at various frequencies. As you do this, compare the visualizations to the original static amplitude map at 30 hertz shown on the left.

Notice how you tune into the different thicknesses along the length of the channel as you adjust the frequency.

When you’re ready to proceed with this eLearning program, click the “next” arrow in the lower right of this screen.
