Description (last modified by kmaclean) (diff)

recommendations from atterer-01202007:

  • People shouldn't be forced to use forum posts to submit the files - provide a dedicated page.
  • As the first step, require people to log in. Maintain a profile of already-submitted data and automatically make a useful choice for new prompts data
  • Only require people to upload the .wav files. The rest of the info is entered on the web page: License (maybe fixed at GPL, or choice between GPL/BSD?), speaker and hardware characteristics. All fields should already be filled in from any previous upload, making the second and subsequent submission much faster
  • Maybe allow people to upload their saved audacity project. This would make uploads very easy. I'm not sure how difficult it is to decode audacity's xx_data format.
  • Open the upload page with the "browse..." and submit button immediately after the log-in. ATM, it's a rather large amount of clicks to get the task done, with the necessity to open multiple browser windows/tabs and to switch back and forth between them. If the automatically selected prompts data is also displayed on the upload page, only a couple of help pages need to be opened in addition to this main page.

My question to atterer:

Are you saying that I should assume that user who log in want to submit audio (which makes sense ...) and therefore when they do they should be sent to a single page with all the information they need to do submit audio (including automatically selected prompts)?

his reply: Not quite, but almost. I mean this: If a user clicks on "SubmitSpeech?" and is already signed in, immediately present him with prompts data which has not been done by him so far. Otherwise, require him to login/register first, and then present that page. Don't let him record stuff, prepare a .tgz etc. first. (Well, anonymous access to the respective help pages should be possible regardless, for the curious who do not want to register yet.)
