we are now hiring a studio with voice talents( one male and one female, sometimes there may be a third one in the conversation) to record a bunch of dialogues and lectures for our TOEFL practice tests.
Requirement: standard American accent; able to deliver a speech or lecture in a professor way.
We have sample official style for you to imitate. Our rate is 4 dollars per finished minute.
Once chosen, you may receive a 300 minutes contracts.
If you are interested in the job, please record a sample for us the script is attached.
sample script is as follows: but you only need to hand in a 90 seconds sample
Narrator: Listen to part of a lecture in a physics class.
Professor: There are many different forms of energy, uh… and in general one form of energy can be transformed into another form… when energy is added to an electron and an atom, the electron will release that energy and in so doing, transform it into another form of energy, such as electromagnetic energy. Electromagnetic energy comes in different forms; such as light, heat, x-rays, microwaves, and electricity.
Now, in most cases when we want to generate electromagnetic energy, we want to generate one specific form of energy. When we want heat, we’ll want to convert some form of energy, such as electricity into only heat energy… and when we want light, we’ll want to convert electricity into only light energy and this is what we’re going to talk about.
Ok, uh… suppose we’re looking for an ideal device to generate light. What would the ideal light generating device be? Uh… it would be one that would give us exactly what we wanted. In other words, all the energy that goes into this device would come out in the form of light and none of it would be converted into heat or any of these other forms of energy we mentioned. We’d also want this source to be fueled by energy that’s safe and easy to store and use and it could be converted efficiently. And once we have our light, we don’t want any substance left over that would be hard to dispose of… (unclear) to harm us or the environment.
Now, historically speaking, we’ve actually come a long way toward this goal. Um… what did our early ancestors use to get light? Well, they used a simple means. They used fire. But, fire generates thermal energy… heat. Uh, granted fire provides some light but it produces much more heat, um… we find the same problem with the incandescent light bulbs we use today. It’s true that with incandescent bulbs, there’s a higher ratio of light to heat than you’d get from a campfire, but you’re still getting more heat than you want. If you’ve ever tried to unscrew an incandescent light bulb without waiting a few minutes first, you know this is true (chuckling). Well as you know, incandescent bulbs aren’t the end of the story and we now have newer light generating devise that provide more light than heat.
We have florescent lights. The lights you see in offices or in this classroom. Uh… florescent light is uh, essentially a tube filled with mercury gas. We stimulate the electrons in the gas and those electrons bounce off special coding on the inside of the tube. This coding glows when it’s hit by electrons. And so we get light. Florescent lights are efficient… you get much less heat from them than you do from ordinary light bulbs. Unfortunately, mercury is highly toxic, so safely disposing of these tubes is difficult. Scientists have also developed various other light generating devices. But, these too have drawbacks that make them less than ideal. Recently though, scientists have been working on a very promising way to generate light called chemiluminescence.
With chemiluminescence, the generation of light is the result of a chemical reaction. That means we don’t have to worry about providing energy like electricity to fuel it. We can also pretty much consider this to be cold light, um… given the right chemical reaction, no heat is produced. Well, at least no measurable heat. It’s mostly light and there are no parts to burn out or break. We find chemiluminescence in nature. It’s what makes fireflies glow and it’s found in various marine organisms. Scientists have isolated the genes responsible for making the chemicals that cause some of these organisms to light up and they’re working on applying their knowledge of chemiluminescence to create new ways to generate light. Uh, right now the light we can get from chemiluminescence is dim, but in time we may be able to use it to generate substantial illumination.
