About Voice

Voice is a new Public Voice Communication Software being built on GNOME 43.

Voice will let you listen to and share short, personal and enjoyable Voicegrams via electronic mail and on the World Wide Web by GNOME executives, employees and volunteers. Ogg Vorbis is a patent-free audio codec that more and more Free Software programs, including GNOME Voice (https://www.gnomevoice.org/) have implemented, so that you can listen to Voicegram recordings with good/fair recording quality.

The first Voice 0.4.0 release with experimential wizard, XML file support in $HOME/Music/GNOME.voice and live microphone recording into $HOME/Music/GNOME.ogg is available from https://download.gnome.org/sources/gnome-voice/0.4/gnome-voice-0.4.0.tar.xz

The latest Voicegram recording gets stored in $HOME/Music/GNOME.ogg and the XML meta file in $HOME/Music/GNOME.voice

1) You can download https://download.gnome.org/sources/gnome-voice/0.4/gnome-voice-0.4.0.tar.xz and extract gnome-voice-0.4.0.tar.xz with tar.

2) You can compile with gcc, install and run gnome-voice as given in the INSTALL instructions on GNU systems.

3) You can exit gnome-voice by clicking on "Cancel".

4) You can upload $HOME/Music/GNOME.ogg (or another audio recording) on https://www.gnomevoice.org/voice/

5) You can share it with a peer who downloads for example https://www.gnomevoice.org/stream/data/1664076856.voice

6) The number in the URI file name 1664076856.voice is Unix time, the number of seconds since epoch (January 1, 1970) since your upload of your local ~/Music/GNOME.ogg recording with gnome-voice 0.3.0.
