I want to open this topic because more and more languages are moving to the voice collection phase (thanks to be able to get enough sentences!)
Now that your language is available for voice collection you might wonder, now what?
Keep in mind that in order to properly train Deep Speech algorithm there are a few big challenges:
- Get at least 2000 hours of voice recording.
- Get at least 1000 different/diverse speakers contributing.
As a community volunteer you should not be scared about this big goals but rather think:
- How can I make the experience fun to get people contributing donating a lot of clips?
- How can engage big crowds of diverse people in order to also get more people contributing?
Let’s use this topic to share some ideas on how we are mobilizing our local communities, from events in Universities, to new ideas to collect voices outside the main app…
Let’s get free from the voice silos!
