Hoi, Yes, they were uploaded. They are not that easy to find because they are things like file:Nl-Zalig Pasen.ogg I found this one for Easter. The soundfiles are there on Commons but for whatever reason the pages where they were used are no longer with us :( Thanks, Gerard On 8 February

I'd like to ask your support the project I started: http://pigsonthewing.org.uk/open-licensed-format-recordings-voices-wikipedia-wikimedia-commons/ asking the subjects of Wikipedia articles to record a 10-second sample of their speaking voice, for use on those articles. An example script is

Yeah, it'd be cool to have a tool that allows the subject to record and then make their file an ogg, or record it to ogg in a super fast way. it's a small, but time consuming thing to record yourself, upload it (or whatever) to your computer, and then figure out how to make it into an open

Even if I'm really in favor of sound content in articles, I'm not sure that a license like the CC by SA is good for that. Do the subject are really aware of what it means?, that their voice could be used without their consent afterwards? It could be a good opportunity to open a constructive
