Voice Processing Corporation, a leading speech recognition company based in
Cambridge, MA, USA, is looking for an individual to assist in a speech sample
collection project in Spain.

VPC is arranging an office in Madrid. Training and setup of computer system
will be conducted by VPC. The main task of the person in charge is to have
between 2,500 and 3,000 people call in to the system and go through the
collection script. The person in charge preferably is a national of Spain, and
needs to be somewhat familiar with computers. Not other special skills are
required, but persistance and creativity might come in handy.

The project should be finished in about one month, and should start in April.
Apart from the compensation, all costs related to the project itself, plus
expenses for the person in charge will be covered by VPC. This project might
be followed by two similar projects.

If you are interested, please contact Inge De Bleecker by e-mail at, or call (617) 494-0100.
