Hi, I'm Scott. I'm a co-founder of [login to view URL] - using virtual reality to learn languages.
We're about to release new content for Chinese, Japanese, French, German and Spanish and need 10 x beta testers for each of the aforementioned languages. You don't have to be fluent. In fact, we'd prefer learners who would consider themselves beginner or intermediate level to help iron out some kinks in our speech recognition algorithms.
You need to have a Gmail account, be proficient with Google Drive/Google Sheets and have access to Google Chrome from a laptop computer with working built-in microphone. Will not work with an iPad or mobile device. Must have a desktop PC/laptop.
The work is simply reading a line of dialogue and recording yourself speaking that line using a Speech-To-Text API, then entering this data into a Google Sheet. Watch a video explanation here: [login to view URL]
There are approximately 500 lines of dialogue (per language), which will take a maximum of 5 hours to record (more like 2-3 hours) so there's a set project price of NZ$25 for completing a language.
We need 10 x beta testers for EACH language (Chinese, Japanese, French, German and Spanish). You can apply for more than one language.
