Wikipedia:Voice intro project

The Voice intro project makes and solicits audio recordings in which Wikipedia subjects speak their name and introduce themselves, in response to a blog post, "Requesting open-licensed, open-format recordings of the voices of Wikipedia subjects for Wikimedia Commons", by Andy Mabbett (User:Pigsonthewing). We do this so that we know what notable people sound like; and how they pronounce their own names.

Examples[edit]

See the infoboxes on:

For a complete list please see the Commons categories.

How to record[edit]

For more details of how to make and upload a recording, examples, and a suggested script, please see Commons:Voice intro project.

Adding voice files to Wikipedia articles[edit]

You may copy:

{{Listen| filename = XXXXX |title = XXXXX's voice |type = speech |description = recorded XXDATEXX }}

or, for embedding in infoboxes:

| module = {{Listen| embed=yes |filename = XXXXX |title = XXXXX's voice |type = speech |description = recorded XXDATEXX }}
