We received this following email...

My name is Cornelia Carey and I am working on a community mental health team in Ashbourne. We are working as part of a new model of care for people with psychosis. The launch of the service is on the 12th May. None of the service users or family members are comfortable speaking at the event as it is so local. However, two family members and two service users are willing to write about their experience and for this to be read out anonymously on a video recording at the event.

We will need two male and two female actors, ideally one man and one woman in their 20s/30s to read out the service user's experience, then one man and one woman in their 50s/60s to read out the family's feedback. We would like these to be video recordings that we can play at the launch, so the actors do not need to physically attend the event. Each recording should take less than five minutes plus preparation time.

We will pay - could you let us know your fee? Also, would it be possible for the actors to do their own recording and send it to us for editing? Apologies, we are new to this and we're not sure how best to go about it!

Wanted - student for a special recording project

Pay - €14 per hour

I work at National Star, a UK charity providing specialist FE education for young people with complex disabilities and learning difficulties.

We have a young woman who uses an electronic device to communicate who we are helping source a voice donor for. There are few, if any age-appropriate, regional voices for communication devices. Many of the voices are middle-aged and not very appropriate if you are in your early 20s. We have helped several young people find suitable donors and have a voice that is their own.

The reason I am contacting you is that the student we are currently working with on the voice project wants a soft Dublin accent. Ideally, we look at people who are under the age of 30 to be donors. To be a donor requires a person to record 1,600-3,000 phrases which are then converted into a synthesized voice. Ideally, we would ask potential donors to record a standard set of phrases so that the student can listen to it with the support of a Speech and Language Therapist to pick the voice they prefer. It usually takes 1-2 days to record the 1800 phrases needed. We can be flexible around timings for recording to fit in with their other work.

If you are interested, please contact Marianne Sweet msweet@nationalstar.org. She'll get back to you with more details once you register your interest.
