The Call That Changed Everything

In 2002 things changed in ways no-one could have anticipated.

Karen was asked to audition for a text-to-speech voice system. The client was looking for a native Australian female voice-over artist living in the North-East of the United States.

The Only Woman Men Will Take Directions From!

Karen booked the job, and recorded for 50 hours in the studio to create a voice system now heard in over a billion GPS and smartphone devices around the world.

UnknownAs a member of the Screen Actors Guild – AFTRA, Karen’s voice has been heard on national commercial campaigns in the USA, and in many customized voice systems around the world.

Some of the more unexpected places her voice has been found include:

  • elevators
  • cruise ships
  • electronic devices
  • cinemas
  • hotels
  • audio books
  • software applications
  • and once even in a car wash.

Voted the number one downloadable voice in the world, Karen is in demand to create custom voice systems for clients internationally.
