I don't know what the kids are saying these days.

Most of my "slang terms" contain words that the corporate world frowns upon having in their internal videos / training. That's not to say it wouldn't make it far more entertaining to listen to ...

I must admit I had salacious fun reading Esquire and GQ magazines for a New York City radio station for the blind. No bowdlerizing* allowed. Let the freak words fly!

Sent the recordings, Slangy version and all.

They used the Non-Slang version and the customer was a happy camper Smile

Hi Bob,

I did ask when I sent the first recording but received no answer. This was going through a studio in Germany.

I created a slang text and recorded it as well. But then I thought they really wanted a more conversational version, and it seems that is what they wanted as the video has been produced already.

If the end client is happy then I am happy.
