Lionbridge has a new project for minors in United Arab Emirates!
The aim of this project is to help improving and further developing modern speech recognition systems for computers and mobile devices. The project consists in collecting voice samples in Arabic. The tasks are performed remotely (from home or any quiet place) and do not require any specific knowledge or previous experience, please see below the details and the rates we are offering to the participants:
Requirements: an Android device (phone or tablet) or a computer (desktop or laptop) with Chrome, Internet connection and a quiet place for the recording. The participants’ mother tongue should be Arabic (UAE).
Estimated duration of the task:
Children: 30 minutes to 1h, depending on the age of the child (young children might need the parent support, so the completion time will be closer to 1h)
Task description: The participants will see sentences in Arabic on the screen and will need to record their voice while reading them aloud. The children will see 160 short sentences or parts of sentences. Note that the content is adjusted to respect ages 3 to 15 years, however, in case a sentence is considered inappropriate, it can be skipped.
Children: 45 USD for the entire task (160 sentences).
The payments will be done by PayPal or Direct Bank Transfer
