A project to make audio recordings in which Wikipedia subjects speak their name and introduce themselves.

First suggested in a blog post, "Requesting open-licensed, open-format recordings of the voices of Wikipedia subjects for Wikimedia Commons" by Andy Mabbett (User:Pigsonthewing).

理由[edit]

So that we know how a notable person pronounces their own name, 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.

すべきこと[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.

できないこと[edit]

If you can't make a FLAC or ogg file (or don't know what that means) you can e-mail us the wav or mp3 and release it under an open licence. If the file is too big to be e-mailed, you can use file sharing or sound hosting services like Audioboo, SoundCloud or Vocaroo. We'll do the conversion for you. You're welcome to drop a note on this page's talk page if you have questions or need help.

Another alternative is to contact a volunteer on WhatsApp - please ask for contact details.

言うべきこと[edit]

Typically people say:

“Hello, my name is [name]. I was born in [place] and I have been [job or position] since [year]”

Please include a brief pause between "my name is" and your name.

You're welcome to say more!

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

言うべきではないこと[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.

The files[edit]

Files are sorted into categories, by language. See a list of categories, at Category:Voice intro project.
