Hi, I'm Ellenor2000, the collective front name for the personalities in my brain. (Yes, I'm multiple, but it doesn't affect my work nor my computer addiction.)

I have partially converted my blood test results to American units for your perusal here. Only the lipids and chemistry are displayed.

How fasting made me diabetic - a treatise in the style of a blog post on the dangers of fasting for young non-type 2 diabetic individuals.

My Telegram username is @ellenor2000. I run a channel called @UmbrellixSpeaks where you can listen to some of my publicly available voice notes. If you PM looking for me to do work for you, say so in the first message so I don't report you. I'm known for zealous reporting.

Since I finally got freelance work as a voice actor, I figured I should publish my rates and information about my voice.

I'm an 19 year old British physically male person in Canada. I have been here for 6 years and have picked up a bit of the local accent. My raw accent is mostly British, with some western Canadian inflections here and there. Being an unemployed high school dropout with poor equipment and informal script reading form, I charge cheap rates for short and long scripts. I'm looking to get practice in this field but my rates will track the cost of living, not my experience.

My fee structure is as follows. At your option, if the price of the Euro on the day is more than 80 US cents, you may choose to have me charge in Euro rather than US Dollars, for the same numerical price. With a 15 cent per base time surcharge you can also pay in Canadian dollars (when the Canadian dollar is weak this is a good deal for Americans). This accounting change will be automatically applied if the Canadian dollar is weak enough.

My normal business hours are 0900-2200 every day including statutory holidays, except on Mondays and Fridays when they are 1600-2200; however, expedited delivery fees will be waived if expedited delivery does not pose an inconvenience for me.

There is a “base time” and a “charge time.” For scripts under 4 minutes, the base time is the same as the charge time, 6 seconds.

Script length Special request Charge time (time per base rate)
< 40 base times None 6 seconds (== 1 base time)
Faux American 9 seconds
Language other than English 12 seconds, with unlimited samplers
40 - 59 base times None 6 seconds, but you get the last 1 minute and 56 seconds free
Faux American 9 seconds, but you get the last 1 minute and 56 seconds free
Language other than English 12 seconds, with unlimited samplers, and you get the last 1 minute and 56 seconds free
60 - 120 base times None 9 seconds
Faux American 12 seconds, but availability is unlikely at this length
Language other than English 18 seconds, availability is unlikely at this length, with unlimited samplers
> 120 base times None 9 seconds up to 12 minutes, 12 seconds thereafter
Faux American 12 seconds up to 12 minutes, then 18 seconds, but availability is unlikely at this length
Language other than English 18 seconds up to 12 minutes, then 27 seconds, availability is unlikely at this length, with unlimited samplers

I can only guarantee intelligible results in English with my raw British pronunciation, or in some circumstances with a faux-American pronunciation. I will not charge for oops-pile recordings unless you have already claimed a discount. Discount oops-pile recordings will be charged at 25%, except for complicated recordings which will be charged as noted below, and there will be no charge for other-language oops-pile recordings.

I reserve the right to waive charges in part or in whole; I'm doing this for fun, not money.

Prices will be pro-rated by the base time, so a 12 second charge time recording that is less than 6 seconds long will only cost ½ a rate. Surcharges will be pro-rated by the applicable charge time, so a 5 second recording with a 12 second base time demanding delivery while outdoors or out-of-hours will cost 65 cents US, cents Euro or 80 cents Canadian, representing that it is half of a charge rate long for the base rate but a full charge rate long for the surcharges. A 13 second recording at 12 seconds charge time demanding expedited delivery will be $1.80; $1.50 of which is the basic recording charge.

You will be charged an initial $5 deposit, refundable if the total cost of your order comes to under $5.

Product/surcharge Price per charge time (base rate prorated per 6 seconds)
Basic recording on a phone or tablet microphone delivered as a Telegram voice note USD 1.00
Basic recording on a phone or tablet microphone delivered as an MP3 file by Telegram USD 1.15
Basic recording on a Logitech USB microphone delivered as an MP3, Flac, Ogg or Opus file by Telegram or email USD 1.60
Expedited delivery surcharge recorded on phone and delivered outside of normal business hours USD 0.15
Expedited delivery surcharge recorded on computer and delivered outside of normal business hours USD 0.30
Complicated recording surcharge (complicated terminology, specific vocal style or long scripts requiring a consistently high pitch, or other special requests as decided; rejects may (however I usually waive this) be charged as basic recordings at a 12 second base time without the complicated recording surcharge) USD 1.00
Standard surcharge (will not be charged unless requested, and may be applied multiple times) USD 0.05

A twenty-four second Telegram voice note recording with standard delivery or waived expedited delivery (I'll waive expedited delivery if I'm feeling nice), no requirement for a specific vocal style and standard accent (nonstandard accents may, at your option, command a discount because the resulting recording will be of poorer quality), and recorded on a phone or tablet microphone with two standard surcharges has a charge rate of $1.10, and at four charge times long, will cost $4.40.

The default order is with 0 standard surcharges. If you believe the quality is worth an extra, say, ten cents per charge time, you can request, say, that I append two standard surcharges to the final tab.

I will gladly record IVR prompts for PBXes. I've done this for myself (non-chargeable) a few times.
