We are making the move to set up a service hotline, and need a simple 'no one is available, here are some common topics'-type message.

I don't know anyone I think would be suitable to do the message, so I tried Googling around on the topic to find an agency that does it..I know there's a lot of 'talking video actor' companies for websites, but can anyone suggest a turnkey, lower cost place where I could send a script and get a professional sounding voice to record it?

So far i've only found really serious looking pro voice actor websites and that's probably not in the price range we could justify.

Check with your local community college or vocational school- they probably have some sort of broadcasting classes for people wanting to break into TV or radio. Students usually work cheap. :)

Unfortunately I am expat in Germany. :) While the English skills of the young people here are impressive, it would be hard to find a neutral Joe/Jane Midwest that would suit our core market of 60% North America.

How close is the nearest military base? GIs can work cheaply too.

Rammstein/Landstühl are all that I know of, and are quite far away. Surely there must be somewhere online for sourcing this type of service, it's a classic case of crowd sourcing - pay $X and get 5 different people to do the voice over, winner wins, rest get a small share.
