AV Recordings for Speech Research Study

Website URL Adult Audio Visual Speech Perception Lab at Washington University School of Medicine

Speech and Hearing Lab

We’re looking for a female with a standard mid-west accent to record some stimuli for us.  We will have you sit and record speech material that we will use in speech perception experiments.  We can pay $25 per hour and expect to be done recording in 2 hours.  To audition please:

1. Provide a head-shot or picture of your face with your response

2. Provide a normal voice speech sample by calling 314 747-7157 and record the following passage (please don’t worry or re-record if you make a mistake, we just want to hear your voice):

“Aristotle thought that the rainbow was caused by reflection of the sun’s rays by the rain. Since then physicists have found that it is not reflection, but refraction by the raindrops which causes the rainbows. Many complicated ideas about the rainbow have been formed. The difference in the rainbow depends considerably upon the size of the drops, and the width of the colored band increases as the size of the drops increases. The actual primary rainbow observed is said to be the effect of super-imposition of a number of bows. If the red of the second bow falls upon the green of the first, the result is to give a bow with an abnormally wide yellow band, since red and green light when mixed form yellow. This is a very common type of bow, one showing mainly red and yellow, with little or no green or blue.”
