I started it but I really didn't like it. It's one thing to read a phrase but much harder to come up with a phrase and then transcribe it. I don't know if I'm slow or if they have massively underestimated how long it would take but it just isn't worth it in my opinion.
yeah you've pretty much put me off the whole project with this lol

Saying OK GOOGLE 200 odds times years ago was enough to drive me mad!

Well, I did an hour on it before quitting because it was really annoying and it was taking too long. I won't get paid for that hour but I just did not want to continue with it. i don't know how they are doing recruiting people for it but I seem to get an email about it every day so they might be struggling and need to up their payment.

Exactly the same here. The payment is borderline acceptable for three hours' work but I can't see how you can read the instruction, come up with a phrase, record it and transcribe it within the time they are allowing for each one.

So you've bailed out as well then on this one?

I have. I don't like bailing on work I have accepted, but equally I don't like being told that the work can be completed in an unrealistic timeframe.

anyone on here doing this UK speech collection task for $48?
If anyone is thinking of doing this one don't bother, I completed the whole thing over 3 days, it took 8/9 hours in total ( I wasn't going slow). I sent them a complaint as they've massively underestimated the time it'll take to complete, haven't heard anything back yet.

Hi all, I got invited to join the Saldua project. Only thing is that it's been so long since I signed up that I cant remember which is which - I registering interest for 3 but they all had differing time commitments. Thanks for the help!

It's a nice easy one between 1 & 5 hrs per week. Social media ad rating.

This Did make me laugh since most of us on here helped Appen with the OK GOOGLE work a few years back and now it seems the public are HORRIFIED that we heard the recordings of their voice

Was anyone else on the UCI/ Zeya project. Have been on it since October but was told today I am no longer needed after Sunday :-(

Was a shame as it was a good earner.

Hope we get paid for April. I have no way of checking my hours are right now that they moved platform.

Hopefully something else will come up soon.

You will still get paid for the hours you've done. I've had a project end before and didn't have a problem with payment.

When you say you can't check your hours do you mean for last month or this month? You should just be able to use user metrics either way. :)

I can use the metrics. They juat no longer upload them into appen global as they moved over to leapforce platform on april 1.
Not sure why as that's a mess

I will continue to work until Sunday and see what else pops up. Hopefully something soon. Though this project came out of the blue.

I get invitation, but didnt pass test. Not sure if I am going to retake it, did not understand rules :/ Did you pass?
I decided not to go for it in the end. The qualification process was too much
