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).

¿Por qué?[edit]

So that we know how a notable person pronounce their own names and what they sound like. The sound of their voice can be helpful, for example:

  • as a way of identifying a person for people that have a vision impairment
  • to confirm a person's identity, if you've heard them on, say, the radio
  • to distinguish them from someone else with the same name

The pronunciation is useful:

  • if you are about to meet them
  • if you are about to mention them in a presentation or on air

In fact, you’d have the canonical pronunciation of their name: their own.

Qué hacer[edit]

If you are the subject of a Wikipedia article, please upload a FLAC or ogg audio recording 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.

No puedo hacer eso[edit]

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 Wikimedia Commons 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.

Qué decir[edit]

En general la gente dice:

“Hola, mi nombre es [nombre]. Nací en [lugar] y he estado en [trabajo o posición] desde el [año]”

¡Puedes decir más!

Listen to some of the examples, in the project's English-language category.

Qué no decir[edit]

  • Don't mention that you're making a recording for Wikipedia/Wikipedia Commons
  • No advertising, pitching for work, advocacy, proselytizing or politics.

Further steps[edit]

  • 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.
