Commons:Voice intro project/eo
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 a FLAC or ogg audio recording of your own, normal speaking voice.
Se vi estas Wikimedian kiuj laboras kun konsiderinda popolo, vi povas fari tion por ili.
If you are (or your subject is) fluent in more than one language, please record a separate file in each.
Mi ne povas fari tion
If you can't make a FLAC or ogg file (or don't know what that means) you can upload a Wav, mp3 or other audio file to your own website, or a service like http://audioboo.com, http://soundcloud.com or http://vocaroo.com, (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.
Tipe popolo diras:
“Hello, my name is [name]. I was born in [place] and I have been [job or position] since [year]”
You're welcome to say more!
Listen to some of the examples, in the project's English-language category.
Kion ne diri
- Don't mention that you're making a recording for Wikipedia/Wikipedia Commons
- No advertising, pitching for work, advocacy, proselytizing or politics.
- Add a link to the recording, from the subject's page on Wikidata, using P990, with a qualifier specifying the language used.
- Transcribe the recording, as Timed Text captions.
Files are sorted into categories, by language. See a list of categories, at Category:Voice intro project.
