Voxforge.org home page applet requests "unrestricted access" to my computer. Not bloody likely.

From this twitter post

Need some way to allow users to record in memory, rather than using hard drive to store audio... so that applet no longer needs to be signed, and not have a pop-up notice re: unrestricted access

Change History

A few other options:

  • Standalone Speechsubmission app that is then packaged for all major distros
  • memory-based recorder for short submission (<10) - and therefore, no applet signing required, disk-based applet for longer submission (>10) - would require signing because of access to user's disk space.
