Commons:Voice intro project/nl
A project to make audio recordings in which Wikipedia subjects speak their name and introduce themselves, in response to a blog post, "Requesting open-licensed, open-format recordings of the voices of Wikipedia subjects for Wikimedia Commons" by Andy Mabbett (User:Pigsonthewing).
So that we know what notable people sound like; and how they pronounce their own names.
If you are the subject of a Wikipedia article, please upload an ogg audio recoding of your own, normal speaking voice.
If you're a Wikimedian working with notable people, you can do that for them.
If you are (or your subject is) fluent in more than one language, please record a separate file in each.
If you can't make an ogg file (or don't know what that means) you can upload an mp3 or other audio file to your own website, or a service like Audioboo (or email it to a Wikimedia Commons volunteer) and release it under an open licence, and we'll do the conversion for you. Please drop a note on this page's talk page if you do; or if you have questions or need help.
