Project Main Details
Our first priority is a voice that is easy to hear over the phone. (Not too high-pitched, not too deep. Remember the telephone has a limited sound range-- so not everyone sounds the same on the phone as they do on the radio, for example.). Ideally, little detectable accent so it can be used across the country.
Secondly-- pronunciation and the speed of spoken words are extremely important. Most people today who use voicemail are looking to speed past the voice prompts as quickly as possible. However-- our customers do not use automated IVR menus frequently. We must choose the wording of our prompts carefully, and make no assumptions. For example, we always use the word "Passcode" and not "Password" or "PIN".
The people who hear these prompts will listen to them and follow them very carefully.
I can't stress enough: *Take your time* recording these prompts. You don't need to slow it down too much (these customers aren't speaking a foreign language) but if you rush through saying something like "re-record" they might not understand it. Slow it down just a little bit. Most voicemail systems speak far too fast.
Many of these prompts will be cut-up and combined by the voicemail system. (Such as dates like "Monday December Twenty Ninth"). For that reason, adequate silence must be provided between the prompts.
We need a full set of dates, times, and numbers-- but I recommend not recording them in order. It's natural to record numbers one right after another-- but it ends up sounding like a countdown. We want to avoid this. Our number and date prompts need to sound perfectly uniform when played out-of-order. For that reason, the script is intentionally provided out-of-order.
We don't require any type of post-production (such as separating the prompts). One continuous session file (even if it includes re-do's) are fine. 2012-09-22 16:58:33 GMT 2012-09-30 22:00:00 (GMT -06:00) Central Time (US & Canada) Yes (click here to learn more about ) Closed 0 0 1 direct invitation(s) have been sent by the voice seeker resulting in 0 audition(s) and/or proposal(s) so far.
