17. wiki massuser create

Sometimes, we need to create 100s of users on wikipedia, for any training/event. Currently, only 6 users can be created. Admins can create multiple users, one by one. Automate this process using mechanize and beautifulsoup.

18. OCR4wikisource web version using google vision api

Rewrite https://github.com/tshrinivasan/OCR4wikisource with google vision api and give a web interface.

19. create a command line TTS from the source of a mobile TTS app.

Here is a open source TTS mobile app for tamil.

http://www.iitm.ac.in/donlab/tts/androidapp.php

Register and download the source and apk.
The voice named “Naveen” is good.

There are many c files in the folder
SSNFlitehtsTamil/app/src/main/jni

Can you compile those files and give a binary file as a command line tool?

Explore these code and share your thoughts on how to convert this as a
desktop/command line application so that we can use it in our
computers.

20. Create a GUI app for bulk photo uploader for http://commons.wikimedia.org

  3. நான் ஒலிக்கோப்புகளை உருவாக்கும் திட்டங்களில்(1,11,13) ஆர்வமாக உள்ளேன். குறிப்பாக ஒரு அலைப்பேசியில் பதிவு செய்து, அதனை பொதுவகத்தில்(https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page) பதிவேற்றினால், அது பன்னாட்டினருக்கும் பயன்படும். பல உலக மொழிகள் அழிந்து வருதலை கவனத்தில் கொள்க. குறிப்பாக தமிழில் பல அரிய, அருமையான சொற்கள் அழிந்து வருகின்றன. அவ்வொலி கோப்புகளைக் கேட்டு, ஒழுங்காக ஒலிக்க கற்கலாம். மேலும், எழுத்துவடிவம் இல்லாத மொழிகளையும் ஆவணப்படுத்தலாம். உலக அளவில் செயற்படும் மொழியியல் வளர்ச்சிக்கும், ஆய்வுக்கும் மிகவும் பயன்படும். எனவே, இதில் மிக்க ஆவலுடன் பங்களிக்கக் காத்திருக்கிறேன். வணக்கம்.
