- No, there is no need for something like this, pronunciation files have very simple description. See File:En-uk-I can't.ogg and File:Pl-trzysta.ogg on how to write the description correctly. Please remember about the proper naming of the file including language ISO code. --Derbeth talk 18:53, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
Here's how to record a bunch of words on a Ubuntu Linux platform. Use 'synaptic' or 'apt-get' to install the necessary software packages, such as 'alsa-utils' and 'sox'. Compile a list of words that you want to record.
#!/bin/sh lang=sv while read word do echo $word arecord -r 100000 -d 4 $lang-$word.wav sox $lang-$word.wav $lang-$word.ogg norm vad -p .25 reverse vad -p .25 reverse done
Here, "sv" (Swedish) is set as the language, which will be used as a filename prefix. "echo" prints the word as a prompt. "arecord" records four seconds of audio in 100 kbit/s, including any initial and trailing silence, so you don't have to press any key to start and stop the recording. "sox" then converts the recorded wav file to the free and open Ogg Vorbis format, but first it normalizes the sound level, truncates initial and trailing silence, but keeping .25 seconds of silence margin. --LA2 (talk) 01:28, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
