It is a crude attempt at 'speechifying' the Free Rice word definition game. There is only one definition and no scores are kept.
Do you think that something like this would encourage more people to donate speech? How would you improve it?
If the game is successful, we could modify it to use a VoxForge server for recognition so that we could collect speech in a more engaging way.
P.S. The WAMI toolkit was originally discussed in this thread: Using Games as a Way to Get Users to Submit Speech.

Hey Ken, looks great. I'm so waiting for the working thing we could market. We could certainly make it extremely popular!

To improve it, I would do the following (bear in mind that I am not aware of any restrictions of the toolkit):
Make it possible for users to click a button to activate recording and to stop recording when the user turns silent. Because I feel that it is a bit awkward for a user to press and hold a button, especially since it would be possible to make a version where the user could simply click the proper answer.
It would be even more convenient to the user if he could strike a key on his keyboard to start recording (or if this would be an alternative option (e.g. the spacebar). That way, speaking would have a true advantage over using a mouse (not having to move the pointer). That's a small advantage, but I think any advantage is necessary, since for many people a simple click-variant is just as attractive.

ecret has created Speechle an online quiz engine that uses speech recognition.
