Kurdish, Hausa and Swahili speakers needed for a voice technology project

:earth_americas::earth_africa::earth_asia: Today’s humanitarian crises call for big solutions.

:speaking_head_in_silhouette: That’s why we continue to build new speech translation technology so people can access critical information in their language. To make our technology more accurate, we need voice data.

:handshake: You can help by and contributing your voice, translations, and reviews to the #CommonVoice project set up by our friends at Mozilla. The data they collect is free to the public, and can help inform TWB’s own projects, like Gamayun.

Right now, we need your help to:
:one: Localize the pages for Kurmanji and Sorani.

:two: Add and review sentences to be recorded. Speakers of all languages can get involved.

We’re also looking for contributions in Swahili and Hausa.

Learn more and contribute on their website.
