Project Main Details

eLearning Research Ethics 
We would like to add a podcast-like audio narration with subtle background sound effects to enliven our e-learning content. See this page as an example of what we wish to achieve: http://goo.gl/RAEepc.

Our courseware trains doctors, research and hospital staff in the Middle East on Ethics in Research.

The pronunciation should be international British. Knowledgeable, wise, story telling, gravitas, depth with warmth. Comfortable with occasional medical terms: "somatic cell nuclear", "oocytes".

There are three case studies we wish to have converted to audio with sound effects. Based on our own test run-through, times are estimated at 1m18s, 1m26s, 1m09s. We would like the first and second case studys to be performed by male artist and third narrated by female with quotes in male accent (same artist as first 2).

Example script of 3rd case study below.

Script Details

Holmesburg Prison Scandal

“All I saw before me were acres of skin,” the researcher Dr. Kligman told a newspaper in 1966. “It was like a farmer seeing a field for the first time.”

This was how he described stepping into Holmesburg prison, seeing 1,200 inmates and regarding them as potential research subjects. He was a dermatologist invited to this prison to see if he could help with an outbreak of athlete’s foot. He spent nearly 20 years carrying out research on inmates.

The inmates were involved in various types of research, from phase 1 pharmaceutical drugs testing to studies on commercial products, such as hair dye and diet drinks. Some inmates were even injected with radioactive isotopes, smeared with dioxin and given poisonous doses of hallucinogenic drugs.

A visitor to the prison was horrified to see “scores of men, their backs, shoulders and arms striped with gauze pads and adhesive tape”. While inmates were paid for their time, they had minimal knowledge about the research they were involved in.
