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.

There is also an optional simple= parameter that can be used to link to a simplifed version of the article as the basis for a shorter recording, as for the schizophrenia article.

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 that makes an audio recording's details readily parsable by computer programs. This aids tasks such as the cataloguing of articles and maintenance of databases. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please visit the Microformat WikiProject.
Subtemplates

Date-of-publication ("published") information will only be included in the microformat if {{start date}} (or, where appropriate, {{start date and age}}) is used in a parent infobox/template. Do not, however, use {{start date}} or {{start date and age}} if a date before 1583 CE is involved.

Use {{duration}} to specify the duration/length of a recording. For instance, if the recording's duration is 3 minutes 45 seconds, use {{duration|m=3|s=45}} (which appears as: 3:45). If needed, |h= may be included to specify a number of hours.

Please do not remove instances of these subtemplates.

Classes used

The HTML classes this microformat uses include:

  • 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}}.)
