About the project
Speechocean, an international company, is looking for people to participate in a global project to help build more inclusive voice-based technology. The project is collecting voice samples of how people talk in everyday situations. These samples are used to teach technologies to better recognize what people are saying in a wide variety of contexts.
How to contribute
This is a 2-hour recording session, including breaks, that provides compensation of $50 upon completion. You can do the session at home, at a time and date that works for you.
You’ll do some recording alone, and some with a partner (they’ll get paid too, and they don’t have to be with you in person). All you need is a smartphone to download our recording app and a quiet place to record.
If you don’t have a conversation partner in mind, we can connect you with another participant for that part of the session.
What you’ll do The app-guided recording session goes like this:
1. Read aloud sentences you see on the screen.
2. Have a casual conversation with another participant, based on suggested topics.
3. Upload your voice recordings and get paid.
The project is committed to ensuring inclusion across ages, gender identities, ancestries, and geographic locations. At this time, we are seeking people who were born in the U.S., who grew up in below regions, and identify as African American or American Native:
Atlanta, Chicago, Detroit, Dorchester County in MD, Lansing in MI, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York City, Oakland, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Roswell in GA, Washington DC
Charleston and Georgetown County in South Caroline
Mississippi Delta cities, like Coahoma.
Eastern TX cities, like Springville.
All North Carolina cities, like Durham, Hyde County, Raleigh, Texana.
Interested? Please get in touch by us, and we’ll send you more information and next steps.
