Purpose

This template links to the spoken version of the article.

Location

This template should be placed in the External links section of the article.

Usage

{{Spoken Wikipedia|Name of file.ogg|{{Start date|YYYY|MM|DD}}|optional size to warn a user who might download if very large}}

Where YYYY|MM|DD is the date of article revision that corresponds to the audio file, in year|month|day format.

Generally, the final (size) parameter can be omitted for files which are less than 3 or 4 megabytes. This is merely to warn people on a slow connection that the file may take a long time to download.

Example at Black

{{Spoken Wikipedia|black.ogg|{{Start date|2005|08|16}}|5.9 mega}}

Note

This template adds a small sound icon at the top of the article

Category

This template adds the article into Category:Spoken articles

Project

This template is part of Wikipedia:WikiProject Spoken Wikipedia.

Microformat

The HTML mark up produced by this template includes an hAudio microformat, which makes the recording's details parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to a playlist or database. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates

Date-of-publication ("published") information will only be included in the microformat if {{Start date}} (or {{Start date and age}} where appropriate) is used in a parent template or infobox (but do not use these if the date is before 1583 CE).

For the length or duration of a recording, say 3 minutes 45 seconds, use {{Duration}} thus: {{Duration|m=3|s=45}}, which renders as 3:45. An optional h parameter can be used for hours.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes

hAudio uses HTML classes including:

  • haudio
  • fn
  • album
  • description
  • category
  • contributor
  • duration
  • h
  • item
  • min
  • photo
  • position
  • price
  • published
  • s

Please do not rename or remove these classes; nor collapse nested elements which use them.

(In this case, the required class="fn" is emitted by the sub-template {{Spoken Wikipedia boilerplate}}.)
