I'd like to spice up our phone system a bit...

Looking for a professional who can record approx 20 minutes of announcements/menus, and be available in the future for updates.

If you know anyone please ask them to email sean@slimdevices.com.

I think you should go with a Monty Python-esque man impersonating Australian female voice thing. It would be much funnier, Bruce.

We also considered:

- The MoviePhone guy
- The Fry's guy
- The Crocodile Hunter
- Sean Connery
- the elusive fish voice

I can't wait to hear the selection!

Or you could go completely bonkers and select a gravely voice, chain-smokin' 55-year old waitress with a wretched,hacking cough....

"What'll it be hhhun (cough, hack)."

But Americans can't tell English 'accents' from Australian anyway!

My wife has a great phone voice. She works in sales.

I've been trying to convince her to do part-time phone sex at the weekend to make extra $$$ for gadgets ;-)

Sean

I'm friends with a voice over artist here in Aus - I've sent you both an email. She'd be perfect and has done quite a bit of voice/radio work.

Cheers

I personally know 3 very famous Australian's and called them up to see if I could fit this in their schedules.....

The good news is one can :D

So I called them up....

First I spoke to Kylie....she told me she'd call me back.
Then I spoke to her sister Danni...she'd call back too.
Then I spoke "The Ginger One" From Prisoner Cell Block H...again, a promised callback.

They all eventually called, and 2 of them couldn't do it :(

Now do you want the bad news.......

Why Australian? I'd go for a sexy Swedish voice every time!

Sean,
My workmate is a go. She's done voiceovers before as well, and has an awesome voice. (She's our telesales secret weapon).

I have sent her your email.

Adios,
Dan

Not that I can help with the talent, but when you have the recording please post the sound bite here!

And as for Americans not telling the difference between English and Aussie is true, but what you dont know is WE DONT CARE ;).

England <-> Australia = easy
New Zealand <-> Australia = not so easy

australia: fesh en cheps
nz: fush un chups
uk fosh on chops

normalised: fish and chips

im from new zealand and have done a little voice work, but probably sound a little mongrel for consumer electronics appeal. that and i generally have to repeat everything 4 times before americans comprehend.

excellent

You might want to check out voice123.com.

You can search by gender and there's an English/Australian/NZ category. They even have audio samples of the voices.
