Project Main Details
“Narrator” Character – the Narrator is a comforting adult presence that helps guide the young user through each learning scenario presented in the App. The Narrator remains off screen at all items, and is only manifested through his voice. The Narrator sets up each learning scenario by explaining what the main focus of the scenario is, and then walks the user through the scenario by playing videos segments and then pausing to ask the user questions. The Narrator then congratulates and reinforces correct answers, and explains why wrong answers are wrong, offering second chances to keep the user moving through the scenario. The Narrator from time to time interacts with one of four insect characters (who are featured throughout the video), and the insects also help advance the scenario and provide guidance to the user. The Narrator is warm, patient, and helpful, without being patronizing. The Narrator enunciates clearly and speaks at a slightly lower than normal rate, to make sure the young user can follow along. The Narrator is genuinely enthusiastic when the user answers correctly, but doesn’t make a big deal out of a wrong answer, just matter-of-factly points out why it’s not the best answer. The Narrator speaks standard American English without a regional accent. The Narrator most likely uses a lower register, and presents as middle-aged or older.
Technical – please deliver finished, edited files, recorded @ 16 bit mono, encoded as LEI16 (little-endian integer 16-bit linear PCM), using a 48 kHz (not 44.1 kHz) sample rate, packaged in a Core Audio File Format (.caf) container. Files to be uploaded via Dropbox, using a common file naming convention that ties to the script which is presented in “nodes” which roughly equate to one line of dialog (which unfortunately has to be in Word, not Final Draft or equivalent, for issues relating to programming). For example, the file for the line of dialog contained in Node 187 of the regular difficulty level (B) of Story 12 would be “story12_b187.caf”). In some cases, to save space and reduce the overall size of the App, the same lines will be reused within the same Story or even across multiple Stories; those lines are marked with an “*” in the script and are not highlighted.

NARRATOR VO: “See, look how much fun Butterfly had when she played with her friends, even though she didn’t choose the game. Spider only wanted to do his thing, so he ended up all alone.”
NARRATOR VO: “You can choose either … it’s more fun to play alone … or … it’s more fun to play with friends”
NARRATOR VO: “That’s right! It’s almost always more fun to play with your friends than to play all by yourself.”
NARRATOR VO: “Hmmm. That doesn’t seem right. Did you notice how much fun the friends had playing together? Poor old Spider was all by himself. Let’s watch again and see.”
