Too many clicks to get to Speech Submit Page

Description (last modified by kmaclean) (diff)

Recommendation from atterer

  • Open the upload page with the "browse..." and submit button immediately after the log-in. [At the moment], 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.

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)?


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.)

To David Gelbart:

I'm working on getting users to create a profile when they first sign-on to VoxForge? (which can also be updated for those who already have accounts) which will have drop down selectors for all the information in the README. I've added a field for microphone categories. I'll see if I can add some pictures - but it might only be a link to a help page. I'm hoping to gather all this information and somehow put it in an XML file that will be included with each user submission - to ease automated processing later on.

From David

Thanks for the reply. Maybe it would be better to make the microphone category selection part of the audio submission process, in case people submit more than once with different microphones?

To David,

hum ... I assumed they would use the same mic set up each time they submitted ...

What I could do is have them confirm that their profile entries are current as they submit their audio (display relevant profile data, and provide a link to update if it is incorrect...). The system would then copy their profile information into a file that would be attached to their audio submission (like the current README file). That way, if they change their microphone or PC configuration, their old submitted audio will have the correct profile info attached to it.

thanks for the feedback,

This will be addressed with new speech submit Java Applet.

Users will not be required to sign-in to website to submit speech - i.e. they can submit speech anonymously.
