Woohoo! I'm so excited to see this project progress. I was just thinking that I wish I had something to contribute to this project...yet I have web design skills. If you'd like I could put together a more attractive looking design for the project page you have up. Check out my website (http://www.g...

also: sound quality is crap. Most probably because it saves everything over the internet, and has to use a brutal lossy compression. This raises other questions to ask LibriVox volunteers and listeners: * What compression algorithm and settings (bitrate?) do LibriVox volunteers use? * Which ones ar...

Another issue is macromedia flash.
I am a bit concerned that flash is not that
portable. I think we could achieve the
same functionality with java.

Yes, very helpful.

As a hint: we were discussing with hugh about providing them book texts
such that every line will have one sentence. Once this is done we will use
sentences as atomic segments/chunks of recorded audio.

have you seen; www.podomatic.com ? Awesome! Does it save everything over the web? answer= Yes Interface is perfectly simple! This is very close to what we should target. But we need to have the ability to save everything to local disk. People will probably would like to work on their recordings bef...

oh so recording from a browser. that's a very cool idea - but it's going to be hard to get consistent audio quality: with network slowness etc. my internet cuts out occasionally. Think of it as if the BBCode editor allowed you to save your work on your own disk besides submitting over the internet....

One thing I'd like, which I know someone else already mentioned in the original thread, is a bookmark feature. That way when I'm recording and I goof, I put a bookmark and then go back and re-read the section. That would make editing easier to pick out those goofs that need to be cut. Hi Annie, we ...

the main problem with audacity is: crashes! This is a good reason to target a standalone program rather than a plugin. One nice other thing about audacity is that it's available for many platforms. I think we should take this one step further, and make ReVoxer run from a web browser. This will not ...

If I were using a tablet style display that felt more book-like, I might change my mind. :? This would be especially useful if I could mark up the display with an electronic pen. When I come across pronunciations that I'm unsure of, I tend to write them out phonetically on the print-out. Robert, I'...

Ooops forgot to login :) Robert, do you think it would help if the computer screen provided you with phonetic representation of words? ...or other types of annotations you might think about. (I am thinking of contributors that actually annotate the text with these information, as well as automatic t...

Hi Robert, I have opened another thread in 'Volunteers Wanted: Other Projects' group. http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=945 There has been some interesting discussion going on over there about possible uses beyond LibriVox. However I still think mobile computers and tablets especially are a ...

Hello Hugh, In fact, if you could go backwards: to take audio, do a voice-to-text conversion, and then link the text to the audio, so you could then search ANY audio for text strings you are looking for. Speech recognition the way you described is a very computationally expensive task. In this case ...

Other than that I'm not of very much help to this project, as I'm not a programmer, and only slightly tech savvy in certain areas. * There are many different visual impairments (e.g. dyslexia) which an application like this could be useful for. * There are plugins for mp3 player which can display l...
