I need a friendly adult male voice (American accent) to record a course for me. Your voice should be of a middle-aged man (possibly 35-45), but not old.
The course contains approximately 48 pages (around 21,000 words).
It should take roughly 2 hours to record if you record everything in one go (per this words to speech calculator [url removed, login to view]).
The voice should come across as relaxed and friendly, likable, because you are teaching something. In no way should it sound commercial. You should also be able to show some emotions, tonality where appropriate, but it should be completely natural.
I have included some text below, if you could read a phrase to hear how your voice sounds, that will help me make a better decision. Also let me know how long you'd need to complete. I have a second project that is shorter at 3,000-5,000 words which we might add as another add-on project.
=== Sample Text ===
Many people will try to speak to the panelists, so you have to be smart about both how and when you approach them. Remember: because so many others are trying to meet the music supervisor, you won't have a lot of time to speak to that person yourself. Think about how best to present yourself to the music supervisor to be memorable when you follow-up the next day or a week after the event. Asking the music supervisor logistical or legal questions, or questions answerable doing some research on your own are both a waste of their time and a wasted opportunity to make a memorable impression.
