Project Main Details

Standard US English TTS Voice Database Recordings 
##Summary: European language technology company seeks female voice talent to record voice database to create American English text-to-speech (TTS) voice for commercial use.

##Who we are and what we need: we are an experienced language technology company based in Barcelona, Spain looking to develop a new synthetic voice - also known as TTS. We are looking for someone with a pleasant voice, excellent reading and pronunciation skills and voice control to record a speech database containing sentences that will be used to create a synthetic voice.

##The product: TTS has numerous and diverse uses: from telephone communications to accessibility for people with reading or sight problems. The recordings will be used to create a large speech database. The speech will be segmented into phonemes, which will be cut up and strung together again to create a synthetic voice. For this reason, what interests us in the recordings is their phonetic richness, not the meaning of the words spoken.

##Start date: as soon as possible.

##Recordings: the voice talent can use the studio of their preference. High quality home-studios are acceptable. Finalists will undergo a casting and sound test to ensure audio quality. Our linguist will be present in each recording session via Skype to supervise and assist (mainly with intonation, maintenance of consistent volume and speed etc.). The most important thing for us is that each sentence be said in the same way - without theatrical interpretation but not monotonous either. It should be constant, neutral but natural. This is a large project. The actor needs to be available for 2 months for around 4 hours a day 5 days a week.

• If you are interested, please send a message so that we can have a look at your demos and get back to you.
• If you wish to submit audio please send read speech: IVR system or neutral narration style - not theatrical and no music.
• Please confirm possible start date.
• If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to ask.
