Project Main Details

Phonemes of English for educational app 
I need a recording of the phonemes of English in "standard North American pronunciation". These sounds would be used in an educational app for iPad and iPhone to help kids learn to read and spell. The recording can be continuous (I will edit it into individual files for each phoneme sound). The entire script is included below.

The reading should be "neutral" in tone (i.e. not really expressive of any particular emotion or mood). Imagine you are helping a child learn to read by sounding out a word "buh..a..tuh...bat" except you will say "bat...buh...buh...buh. [pause] cat...cuh...cuh...cuh". Those "uh" sounds are the "schwa" unstressed vowel sound; if you don't know what that is, please have a look at this

If it means what I think it does, this is buyout (I will own the rights to the recording).

Script Details

[I'd like you to read the "model" word followed by the sound repeated three times with about a half second of silence in between each reading. For consonant sounds, you would add a "schwa" (a **very** brief "uh" sound), so /p/ would be "puh", etc. The recording can be continuous. I'll cut it up into the individual phonemes, etc..

Where indicated, if you care to take a stab at a British pronunciation too, that would be excellent.]
