Hi

I'm very busy atm but I did have time for a proposal to rate speech.

With the new audio html in Firefox 3.5 and Opera and Apple are working on it too, playing audio is much easier. Therefore I wrote a litlle proposal for rating speech on client side. You can try it by downloading the newest beta on http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-beta.html (beta 3 is coming very soon).

     <td>
      <input type="submit" value="submit" />

</html>

It can also play ogg-audio in it which makes more sense in this case.

This is the preview

Hi Dano,

>I'm very busy atm but I did have time for a proposal to rate speech.

Wow... very nice... so much easier than creating it in Java!

I am currently working on the VoxForge backend audio migration scripts so that all languages are contained in Subversion (the newer ones get uploaded directly to the WebGUI CMS and clutter things up...).  Once that is done, I plan to migrate the entire site to Drupal (for a variety of reasons - many thanks to Robin for helping me along with this decision).  I've got the migration scripts pretty well completed, but I don't want to store any audio in the new Drupal instance. 

Once the migration is completed, we can look at creating a CCK/Views app in Drupal for rating of audio (which can definitely benefit from the code you just submitted).

Does Firefox's support of HTML 5 include playback of wav format audio files (we'd be using wav initially...)?

thanks,

Ken

Hi Ken,
