Wikipedia create voices library of famous people




Guide largest online encyclopedia Wikipedia announced the launching of a special project WikiVIP. The purpose of this project is to create a library of votes famous artists, politicians, film and other areas of our life, to preserve them for posterity.

Project led by Wikipedia editors Andy Mabbett and Andrew Gray, who decided that encyclopedia should not be exclusively text biographies of famous people, but can also contain short audio clips from the recording of their voices. Incidentally, the name of the project has nothing to do with the VIP-persons, as you might seem at the outset. Abbreviation VIP in this case stands for Voice Intro Proect.

First celebrities have already started to write and send their votes encyclopedia editors. For example, British actor Stephen Fry happily responded to their proposal and has already recorded audio clip requires him, then reported on a new initiative in its Wikipedia Twitter-account.

Many media companies also volunteered to help this project. For example, the British broadcaster BBC Wikipedia editors gave their huge archive of audio from a variety of shows, TV shows, news reports, and so on. Such assistance is very important, as many famous people have already left this world and all that remains is leaders WikiVIP, is to look for surviving records of their votes.

Those who holds his personal page in the encyclopedia Wikipedia, can contact the project leaders WikiVIP and get all the necessary instructions for recording a sound clip to add to the sound archive. Well, I think that after a decade, our descendants will be very interesting to hear how his voice sounded a particular celebrity, so that the project seems to be very useful for history.
