Mozilla's Common Voice is the project that aims to unlock and open the voice ecosystem. It needs YOUR help to advance English voice collection and get to the next level. In order for a language to be usable by speech recognition engines we need at least 2000 hours of voice collected from at least 1000 diverse people, and we think communities are the only ones that can enable this diversity.
So are you in a country where English is being used as an everyday language? RSVP in the campaign and help us reach our goal of 100 hours of voices in two weeks.
This was the time when the internet was decentralized, creative, made and shared by all who used it. Today, fewer people who use the internet build, hack and participate in its creation. There is more centralized control than ever before.
The good news is that we still have the power to have an impact. It was built by us for us. It’s time to take control back and Mozilla is inviting everyone to participate in that mission.
