Get paid to read out loud – audio recording jobs
Controlling your smartphone without touching it is now possible using your voice. Sentences like, “Hey, Siri, what’s today’s weather going to be?” or “Ok, Google, navigate to my house” are common requests that your smartphone can easily process thanks to speech recognition. Today we’ll explain how you can not only easily earn money with audio recording jobs, but also make a large contribution to the development of speech tools.
The Smart Application of Speech Recordings
The usage of voice recognition already goes well beyond smartphones. So-called home assistants like Alexa turn your house into a smart home, for example by controlling your multimedia system via voice command. In addition, speech tools have also been successfully deployed in the medical field. Through voice recording, which is automatically transcribed as text, nursing staff can devote their time to patient care while simultaneously recording their health condition. The possible applications are therefore numerous, but the full potential is still a long way from being exhausted.
Your Voice as a Valuable Training Partner
To be able to react to your voice and carry out the correct instructions, these various devices must first be trained. This happens with the help of artificial intelligence. For a speech recognition tool your voice is a collection of data. Language, emphasis, even the voice’s register at different times of day deliver information which allows an artificial intelligence to learn. Though silence is golden, in this case your voice has “cash value” and should absolutely be heard. Many companies that work on the development of language tools require training data in the form of audio recordings. The larger the training data pool is, the greater the tool’s learning success, similar to the learning process in humans. This is where the term “artificial intelligence” originated.
