How to help![edit]

If you have a microphone and a copy of Audacity or any other free ".ogg" recording software, please consider uploading your pronunciation to Commons. Remember that the default installation of Audacity has the input volume set to about 20%. Most contributors here have had to change that to 100% to get useful recordings. See Wikipedia for other helpful software options.

Filenames should be the ISO 639 language code (see Wiktionary:Wikimedia language codes), a hyphen, a region code (e.g. "us", "uk", or "au"), another hyphen, the word being pronounced, and ".ogg" as the extension. For example, the file for the US pronunciation of schedule would be "en-us-schedule.ogg", and for the UK "en-uk-schedule.ogg". For heteronyms (homographs with different pronunciations), e.g. lead (be the leader of a group) vs. lead (the metal), we usually tack on the part of speech, for example "en-lead-noun.ogg".

When uploading to commons, remember to add "[[Category:English pronunciation]]" (without the quotation marks) to the file description. Note that commons will now call the file "Image:En-us-Wiktionary.ogg", by capitalizing the first letter and then prefixing with "Image:". Once the file is uploaded on commons satisfactorily, the Wiktionary word should be linked to it by removing "{{rfap}}" and adding in "{{audio|en-us-{{subst:PAGENAME}}.ogg|Audio (US)}}". Replace "us" and "US" with the appropriate region. Please preview before saving!

Thanks for helping!
