Are you ready to help a leading technology company and contribute to the improvement of voice recognition systems?    


Become a Data Collector that contributes to entering information into a database and ensures that your data collection sources are accurate. Data collection is the process of gathering and measuring information on variables of interest, in an established systematic fashion that enables one to answer stated research questions and evaluate outcomes.  


In this project, Appen is collecting speech data in Finnish to train and develop artificial intelligence algorithms that will be used to improve speech recognition technologies.  


We’re looking for individuals in Sweden to read and record short prompts using the Appen Mobile.  


Project Description:

  • Example of a sentence that you would need to read: “Okay Alexa, I need directions to work” 
  • The recording will be done and uploaded through our Appen Mobile App. 


Duration of Task:   

Each sentence will take only 10-20 seconds. In total, for the 800 recordings, please plan 4 hours. Of course, we recommend you do breaks and we will give you at least a week to record your session.  


Project Requirements:   

  • A fluent speaker of Finnish residing in Sweden 
  • iOS device must be iPhone 8 or newer, or Android devices that must be 2017 or newer 
  • Ability to record in a very quiet indoor environment, free from any background noises
