Hello, everyone.

(this is an announcement in my capacity as a volunteer.)

Inspired by a lightning talk at the recent CEE Meeting[1] by our colleague
Lars Aronsson, I made a little command-line tool to automate batch
recording of pronunciations of words by native speakers, for uploading to
Commons and integration into Wiktionary etc.  It is called *pronuncify*, is
written in Ruby and uses the sox(1) tool, and should work on any modern
Linux (and possibly OS X) machine.  It is available here[2], with

I was then asked about a Windows version, and agreed to attempt one.  This
version is called *pronuncify.net <http://pronuncify.net>*, and is a .NET
gooey GUI version of the same tool, with slightly different functions.  It
is available here[3], with instructions.

Both tools require word-list files in plaintext, with one word (or phrase)
per line.  Both tools name the files according to the standard established
in [[commons:Category:Pronunciation]], and convert them to Ogg Vorbis for
you, so they are ready to upload.

In the future, I may add OAuth-based direct uploading to Commons.  If you
run into difficulties, please file issues on GitHub, for the appropriate
tool.  Feedback is welcome.
