Description

V suggested in this post:

I don't know if this a viable solution, but might worth thinking about it a bit.

The idea is to put out a small icon on blogs with the VoxForge? logo and a small text: Give your voice. Then if someone clicks on it, then he is redirected to the voxforge page, where he can read the given blogpost into the system á la LibriVox?.

I am sure that it's relatively easy to create wordpress/drupal moduls that would provide this feature. (Communicate the text to the voxforge site.) Moreover we should give an api for others to make this contribution easily possible. (Imagine a firefox plugin that opens all the major newspaper articles on voxforge! :) )

What do you think?

my reply:

Hi V,

Technically, this is a cool idea! The speech submission app could be modified to accept text as a parameter when the applet is called.

Legally, there might be problems if the user is reading a Copyrighted page ... however, we might get the blogger to include a license file authorizing the reading of their blog for submission to VoxForge? (sort of a "yes you can record this, so long as your recording is GPL and is being submitted to VoxForge?" license)... interesting.

From a promotion perspective, it might allow us to build ties with other open source projects and "spread the word".
