We will present Common Voice, Mozilla's crowdsourcing project to create resources for speech recognition in multiple languages. We will use a 'kiosk' to collect as many recordings as possible of people reading aloud preprepared recording prompts. Participants will also be able to listen to recordings of others who have contributed their voices and evaluate them using the project interface (this is a good way of engaging with shyer participants). We will encourage speakers of languages not already covered by the project to submit a request for their language and help Common Voice increase the number of languages covered.

This is a Gallery session.
