YOUR VOICE IS NEEDED!

Google and LSVT are looking for 400 participants to participate in this very useful, unique and important project. I’ve been participating for about 2 weeks, recording sentences and phrases. I’m using my cell phone and laptop to do this and it’s been great, especially with the terrific guidance from the LSVT staff! It only takes about 10-15 minutes each day to record the sentences and phrases. The goal is to record a total of 300 sentences. If you have voice, speech, throat issues, they would like to interview you. And, if selected, they will give you a $60 online gift card when you complete the recordings. Go to the following link to sign up and someone will contact you soon!
