Step 3 - Upload your Speech Files to VoxForge

Create Readme file

First you need to create a README file that describes your submission.  Right-click this link and save the file to your 'train' folder.  Modify the entries where appropriate  (To determine your dialect). 

Create License file 

Next, you need to create a LICENSE file for your submission.  Right-click this link and save the file to your 'train' folder.   Change the year to the current year, and the 'name of author' to your name.

Save Your Prompts file

Cut and paste your prompts file to a file called 'prompts' in your 'train' folder.  

Tar your files.

Please create a single compressed tar file containing the following files:
  • your prompts file;
  • your audio files (in "WAV" or "FLAC" format);
  • your README and LICENSE files.

Name your tar file as follows "[voxforge username]-[year][month][day].tgz"  (please omit the brackets).  For example, if you stored all these files in the /home/myusername/train folder, you would execute the following command to create your gzipped tar file:

$cd /home/myusername
$tar -zcvf kmaclean-20070125.tgz train

Upload Your Speech Audio Files

Upload your compressed tar file by clicking the link below.  Please provide a short description of your submission, something like this (basically the contents of your README, LICENSE and prompt files copied and pasted to your submission form), then upload your file as an attachment.

Note: the maximum attachment upload size is 150 megabytes (unfortunately, no warning message will display if you have exceeded this amount - your file simply will not upload);
