Fix the AddAudio script to upload audio to Commons seamlessly

  • Problem: A great user script that easily allowed users to record audio recordings of words on Wiktionary and upload them to Commons is broken. I have posted to phab:T206942, and for assistance at Commons and Wiktionary to no avail.
  • Who would benefit: Anyone who wants to hear the audio at Wiktionary, particularly for blind users or those who are learning about foreign languages.
  • Proposed solution: My understanding is that there is a problem with the user script interacting with Commons' API. The script has already been made, so it's not starting from scratch, but tweaking how it saves files at Commons.

  • What about using Lingua Libre instead. You "just" need to write the code to support enwikt and all recording will be automatically uploaded to Commons and also on your wiki. Pamputt (talk) 17:51, 7 November 2019 (UTC)
    Lingua Libre bot already add recordings to English Wiktionary. But, it could be great to be able to use Lingua Libre recording tool, and metadata support, directly into Wiktionaries. Maybe it could be related with the proposal to develop a better display of recordings   Noé (talk) 10:01, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
