Community Wishlist Survey 2021/Wiktionary/Tool for recording voiced pronunciation of words

Tool for recording voiced pronunciation of words

  • Problem: There is a section "Pronunciation" in Wiktionary entries. Now it is possible (1) to record audio file, (2) upload file to Wikimedia Commons, (3) write and fill the template with a description of this file at Wikimedia Commons, (4) insert the link to this file into Wiktionary entry. This is too long. A more fun and interesting way is to click the button "record" in the Wiktionary article and record (1) the pronunciation of the word or phrase, (2) the pronunciation of the sentence in quotation. It will be a great step in Wiktionary development.
  • Who would benefit: Everyone who can listen.
  • Proposed solution: ? I think the developers and programmers will search for the solution. I hope.

Discussion

An integration of Lingua Libre could be a way to make it happens. I agree it is needed and could have great results in data collection. Audio is a way to capture diversity Noé (talk) 08:54, 17 November 2020 (UTC)
  • @AKA MBG: I think this would be a good improvement for wiktionary. It all makes sense. MemeGod27 8:49, 19 November 2020 (EST)
  • *Lingua Libre is a growing project hosted by Wikimédia France, which aims to record pronunciations and signs online. It allows easy massive recording, uploading the files to Wikimedia Commons, and a bot integrates the files to Wiktionaries (FR and OC for the moment, hopefully more soon). More than 330.000 audios have been recorded with Lingua Libre, in almost 100 different languages, thanks to 390 speakers. For more information, you can visit LinguaLibre:About. — WikiLucas (🖋️) 22:07, 20 November 2020 (UTC)

Comparison:

  • Spell4Wiki app help to record and upload audio for Wiktionary words to Wikimedia Commons. The app is also a multilingual dictionary based on Wiktionary. It is a F/LOSS tool being developed by Kaniyam foundation and VGLUG with few self-financed, Tamil F/LOSS volunteers and Wikipedians in Tamil Nadu, India. Actually this app allows you to record and upload .ogg audio(sample file) easily. Then, uploaded audio files automatically linked with appropriate Wiktionary word(sample word). All Uploaded files are categorized under Files uploaded by Spell4Wiki and particular language categories. You can download app from this link. We are under development of audio file linking with Wikidata and app improvements. More details you can visit Spell4Wiki - --Manimaran96 (talk) 20:41, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

Isn't there some kind of app that will sound out the International Phonetic Alphabet? Then you wouldn't have to upload anything. VaneWimsey (talk) 02:21, 12 December 2020 (UTC)

  •   Support Multiple approaches are prudent マイキ (talk) 19:30, 8 December 2020 (UTC)
  •   Support A means to directly record audio snippets would be useful across multiple Wikimedia projects. WIkipedia entries often indicate pronunciation, for example. Of course, any audio that a person records of their own voice saying a simple name or phrase should automatically be licensed identically to their text contributions to articles.
