Project Main Details

Helping NonEnglish Speakers with City Services 
This project is for a Southern California municipality that wants to add a language access policy to its training materials. The VO script is waiting to be approved, but it runs about 3 minutes. The client prefers a VO with a non-native English speaker. The target languages are Spanish, Khmer and Tagalog, so I'm opting for a Spanish accent. Knowing that all accents can be nuanced, I would prefer someone from the Southern California area but who originates from any Spanish-speaking Latin American country, rather than an impersonator. The target audience is city employees such as police and firefighters, so I do not want a thickly produced accent, but I would like the speaker to speak in clear English, but I should be able to tell that she is Latina (just as you can tell that I'm from the Bronx). The client expects the video by the end of May, but has not yet produced a contract, so that deadline may move into June. Still, I will be constructing the video with the plan of hitting the May 31 deadline.

Script Details

As part of our efforts to service residents with limited English proficiency (LEP), City employees with bilingual skills in any of the target languages have been identified and may receive certification for that skill set. This is our main channel for assistance when interpretation is needed.
There may be instances where an alternative source of interpretation is necessary, particularly in emergency situations where no City Staff with the required bilingual skills certification is available. 
Please note that you should only use the script or your recording of it for auditioning purposes. The script is property, unless otherwise specified, of the voice seeker and it is protected by international copyright laws.
