Description

from this post:

The text you cite does encourage donors to submit more speech, but this only follows from the text (and note that the dutch translation does not contain this invitation!).

After I read my first 10 phrases, I see a page displaying "Thank you!" and some information about unprocessed speech samples.

My suggestion is that this site should invite donors to submit again, BECAUSE (I composed a sample text for this site from the comments you gave; these are arguments for donors to submit again):

Sample text for webpage displayed after submitting speech:

"Please consider submitting another speech sample. VoxForge? would ideally need at least 15 minutes of speech of each donor and a total of 140 hours for a first release of an acoustic model. To have good coverage of the language we made hundreds of different speech assignments. Don't worry if you already submitted an assignment, that also is of great use to us because you are never able to speak it out exactly the same way again!

Click here to submit again!

Below are the statistics for your submission and the total submission. Would you be so kind to donate at least another xx minutes?

And please... don't forget to tell your family and friends to become a speech donor!" (maybe even add an e-mail form to invite others)

(and of course it would be great if this page is also translated to all languages)

For 140 hours you only need 560 people to submit 15 minutes of speech. I think that with these suggestions that goal could be realised within months (apart from processing all these speech samples :) ).

updated it as follows:

Thank you for your submission!

See below for a current list of speech submissions waiting to be incorporated into the VoxForge? Corpus.

Your speech will be processed and incoporated into the VoxForge? corpus in tonight's nightly build process. To keep track of how much you have submitted see the speech submission metrics page.

Please consider donating another speech sample.

VoxForge? would ideally like to have at least 10-15 minutes of speech from each donor so that we can meet our target of 140 hours for the first release of the VoxForge? speech corpus and acoustic models. To ensure that we have good coverage of the language we have created hundreds of different speech prompts. Don't worry if you already submitted a particular set of prompts, that also is of great use to us since a person never says the same sentence exactly the same way twice!

Click here to submit again!

And please... don't forget to tell your family and friends about VoxForge? and ask them to become a speech donor!

Thanks again from the VoxForge? team
