Record your voice and earn cash!



here is an interesting way to earn a few bucks that i discovered through members of coolworkideas.com. with lionbridge you simply record yourself saying back the phrases listed on the screen. i just did this a few days ago and it was an easy $15 paypal.

here's some info:
--my particular assignment was to record 530 different phrases. at first i was thinking, OMG, that is a ton of work, but i was able to do it in about 40 minutes.
--it is a pain to continually hit 'record' and 'stop' and then 'record', then 'stop', over and over and over. you just need to get into a rhythm and take a break if you need to every 100 phrases or so.
--i did mess up and mispronounce a few words (it gets monotonous!). i also noticed a few phrases failed to upload correctly. even so, i was notified within 48 hrs. that my assignment was accepted and marked as complete. so don't panic if you flub a few times!
--phrases are things typical things you may ask a digital assistant---like 'where is the springfield post office?' or 'Elena, what does dubious mean?' most seem normal yet some will make you do a double take!

from my invitation email: 

The task can be done at home or other quiet place using Android devices (phone/tablet) or any computer with Chrome browser and a microphone.  Android devices are strongly preferred.

What you need before you start:
  • An Android device (phone/laptop) with the latest Chrome browser  OR  A computer with the latest Chrome browser and a microphone/headset.  iPhones/iPads will not work for this task
  • An internet connection (wi-fi is recommended if you use a mobile device), always active while you do the task
  • About 1 hour of available time.  You can split the task into smaller sessions




    i even think it is worldwide! sign up here: https://fs30.formsite.com/LB2014/form92/ and then just wait to be approved and receive your first assignment---good luck!
