Do people hear your voice on their commute getting from place to place? If your pipes are featured in the transportation industry, we want to hear from you!

transportation voiceovers"Doors Open", "Doors Closing", "Ground floor, going up", "Turn left at the next intersection", "Don't forget to buckle up", "Estimated time of arrival is 4 p.m. Eastern Standard Time"...

Do those lines look familiar?

If you've been the voice heard in elevators, GPS systems, in-flight videos, on trains, and public-transit such as on buses or subways we want to hear your story.

Guiding people through the wilderness of transportation is an extremely important job, and somebody's (or literally thousands of somebodies) got to do it!

Share you tales of transport talk with us at the VOX Daily blog by leaving a comment.

You might just make the news...

Cheers,

Stephanie

    Stephanie,

    For 10 years, starting in 1995, I was the voice of the "level off" announcements on US Airways.

    And my voice can still be heard doing the pre-flight safety announcements on some of the smaller Canadian Regional Jets in the US Airways Express fleet.

    I have to admit the first time I flew on US Airways after I started doing the announcements for them, it was a little freaky hearing my voice come out of the speakers on the plane.

      A few years ago I was the English voiceover on promotions for the French Xter train. The public didn't hear my voice but buyers of trains all over the English speaking world would have heard me. The first time I went on one of the new trains it was very strange, almost exactly as my script described it! I still think of the Xter as 'my train'.

          I am the voice behind a whole series of tour guides that are designed to be downloaded and then visitors to various European cities walk around the site following directions and commentary.

          It's all free, but they pay me for my voice.
