Hey Common Voice Community,
Happy New Month and Happy Diwali for people who celebrate !
Voice Clip Validation Drive: Ahead of December 15th Dataset release
The next dataset release is tentatively on December 15th 2021 , with voice clip contribution cut off period approximately 10 days before.
Validating voice clips support the quality of the Common Voice Dataset so application created using the data can better understand people.
I would like to encourage you to create or collaborate on community activities that can help mobilise people to support voice clip validation. Feel free to use and adapt the resources from the social media campaign and community portal.
At the end of the month, I would also like to host validation parties to support the validation of voice clips. These will be open to the community dates are Monday 29th November 6-7pm (UTC), Thursday 2nd December UTC, 2-3pm, 6-7pm (UTC), registration will open soon.
You can now register to attend the Validation Parties via tito
Contribute-a-thon call for collaborations - Tentatively Saturday 4th December
Last month we started hosting monthly sessions focusing on learning, sharing and creating with Common Voice Dataset.
I’m reaching out to ask if two language communities would be interested in collaborating on a community event focusing on either voice clip validation or sentence collection (if the language is not launched)?
The events would take place tentatively Saturday 4th December. If you would like to take part please direct message me or respond on the thread.
For future Contribute-a-thon’s in 2022, next week will be opening an expression of interest form for communities who would like to collaborate with me on a virtual Community sprint/event.
