I've been offered to do a voice recording of prompts for an interactive voice response telephone system, which might take all day.
I have never done this kind of thing before and have no idea of how much I should charge.

I'd also have about 4 hours travel by car (total) to and from the site.

Any ideas will be very appreciated.
If you feel you can't be too specific here please don't hesitate to contact me through my profile.

What I was paid recently. Oct 7, 2004

Hi Graciela:
I don't know if it helps but I live in central London and 2 months ago I did a voice-over recording for a video.
I was paid £50 for 20 minutes, everything included.
I don't know whether it is a low rate or whether it is fine. I hope it gives you an idea.
Kind regards,
