Voice Recording application in python for tamil wiktionary

On March 17, there was a wikipedia hackathon at ThoughtWorks, Chennai.

I participated that event.

There was around 20 programmers joined together to work on building some interesting applications using wikipedia.

We picked up the ideas form the link.

I picked up an idea of creating an application to record audio for adding voices to the tamil wiktionary site.

Example: http://ta.wiktionary.org/wiki/tiny

In this page, there is an audio file on how to spell the word ‘tiny’

Not all the words in the tamil wiktionary has the audio files.

It has around 2 lakh words.
It is a boring process to record a word, upload to commons.wikipedia.org and link back to ta.wiktionary.org page.

I wrote an application to make this process easier. It will show you a word, record it and upload it to commons.

get the source code at

see a demo screencast on the application here:

There are some 13 applications developed and all participants showed their demo on the same day.

Thanks for yuvipanda and srikanth for organising a nice event.

  1. Hi there! This article couldn’t be written much better! Going through this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He constantly kept preaching about this. I am going to send this article to him. Fairly certain he’s going to have a good read. Thanks for sharing!

  2. खरगोश का संगीत राग रागेश्री पर आधारित है जो कि खमाज थाट का
    सांध्यकालीन राग है,
    स्वरों में कोमल निशाद और
    बाकी स्वर शुद्ध लगते हैं, पंचम इसमें वर्जित है,
    पर हमने इसमें अंत में पंचम का प्रयोग भी किया है, जिससे इसमें राग बागेश्री भी झलकता है.

    हमारी फिल्म का संगीत वेद नायेर ने दिया है.
    .. वेद जी को अपने संगीत कि प्रेरणा जंगल में चिड़ियों कि चहचाहट से मिलती

  3. Thanks for your publication on this blog site. From my own experience, occasionally softening upwards a
    photograph may possibly provide the photography with a little bit of an inspired
    flare. Often times however, that soft blur isn’t what precisely you had as the primary goal and can usually spoil an otherwise good photograph, especially if you thinking about enlarging it.
