Hey Common Voice Community,
For this weeks weekly update……
Common Voice Roadmap Community Sessions
We really enjoyed hosting everyone at the Community session this week. You access the slides from the session, slide 9 includes an explanation of the Common Voice Roadmap.
To ensure everyone has the opportunity to share their views, we are creating an anonymous Typeform survey with an explainer video.
I hope to share this next week via the weekly update, as we are currently reviewing the survey’s privacy statement.
We look forward to reviewing and sharing the (anonymised) community response from the session and our soon to be released Typeform survey.
Community Session: Influence Accent Workflow for Common Voice (UI Profile Creation)
Voice is natural, voice is human. A key aspect of voice is a person’s accent. We would like to invite you to our virtual Community sessions for the Common Voice Accent Workflow (UI Profile Creation).
By taking part in the community session you help to inform how the accent workflow for Common Voice can be improved.
This session focuses on profile creation for English language contributors on desktop-sized devices. Our next phase of accent work will include more languages and smaller screen sizes.
