Calling for Voice Talents in Indian Languages
We are developing an app wherein we are teaching pre-school kids some words in their native language. These words need to be recorded in a neutral but attractive voice such that it is appealing to young learners, mainly toddlers kids of age 1 to 6.
There are multiple languages required.
Volume of the audio recording
Around 4,000 words. But maybe more. This includes words in isolation such as body parts, names of vegetables, names of animals etc. and some stories recitations.
Sample Audio Submission
Please submit a sample audio in your language. The languages required are given below. Please click on the language link to get the sample text which needs to be recorded (will be updated as required).
Each language has 20 words and five sentences. Two sentences are extracted from stories and three sentences are instructions. We expect it will take 15-20 minutes at max to record these. Total audio recording may be of a maximum of 5 minutes.
How does it sound and plays out?
A sample of how the audio plays out for Hindi is given in this link.

How to record the audio?
The audio has to be recorded in a quiet environment such that there is no noise when the word/text is spoken.
This can be recorded on a mobile phone. The format has to be WAV or MP3.
Please give a pause after each of the words. The pause duration may be from 200 to 300 mili seconds (roughly half a second)
