"I have worked Allison for over 10 years and she has always provided excellent quality recordings. I have asked Allison for special requests such as needing a subdued sound, a special application needed the prompts to be very fast but not sound like Mickey Mouse and another needed funny/uplifting messaging, she has always delivered. A point that many don't think about, particularly with prompts, new prompts need to fit with prompts she recorded 5 years ago, with the quality and consistency that Allison produces, this has been 'no problem'."
