Wanted: Voices

The last time I wrote an appeal, for an illustrator, I had a super response and found the perfect person, so I'm going to try my luck a second time for a voice or two.

We need a native speaker of Spanish to say a few simple words as part of a children's educational resource to learn Spanish. A few simple verbs and nouns are all that's needed, so if you know of anyone who might be interested, please let me know.

We'll probably need a German speaker too.

And while I'm at it, if you know of anyone who has a lovely deep rich voice who could speak like an ogre, accents no problem and probably a bonus, do let me know too. The ogre software is coming along really well and will have a short audio help which is why we need an ogre voice.

I can send the trial text if you email me or leave a comment.

Thank you!!


  1. I read about this on Twitter.
    I'm German and even if I am not sure what will be required (if you need a German speaker at all), I'm willing to try.

    My e-mail is:

  2. Sadly, my partner has a dreadful south Madrid nasal slur - really difficult for beginners. Even I had problems understanding him at first!
    Good luck!

  3. Sarah, I know the perfect person, MG, he has an incredibly deep rich voice and would make the perfect ogre, I have just had a word with him and he would be very willing to be an ogre. He has been toying with the idea of doing voice overs for years egged on by friends from London.

    his e mail is:

  4. Terrific!

    Cat, I'll email you.

    Pueblo girl - oh well.

    Dash - I'll email you too!

  5. I think it's so cool to put out an ad for an ogre's voice. Who says blogging isn't fun?!
    Glad your illustrator ad worked so well, thinking about doing the same thing myself - the ad that is, not the illustrating.

  6. Dash - sorry, I meant I'd email MG.

    Sharon - yes it is a very cool way of making an appeal. Very easy too :)

  7. I can only help you with Norfolk squit.

    Mardle is to gossip.

    a Mawkin is a Norfolk Scarcrow.

    Puckaterry is a muddle

    Dwile is a floorcloth

    Cushies are sweets etc. etc

    So if you need any Norfolk translations let me know.

  8. Johnny, I'll bear it in mind if we ever need to go a Norfolk squit version for foreigners (everyone outside Norfolk).

  9. I can do RP English, a bit of French and pretend cockney. Oh hang on, you didn't ask for those really.

  10. Sarah, that's what you get for having more than one e-mail address. Sorry, I messed it up totally and don't even know how!

    It's! Argh.

  11. Cool, thanks Cat!! I've emailed you.


  12. FF, pretend cockney? Now there's a thought...
