Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)
Lingua libre is a tool that aims to facilitate the recording of any language. The development has been initially supported by Wikimedia France in order to record minority languages of France. A first version already works while a new version, improving the first one, is currently under development and is expected to be available during summer 2018. The tool will be presented and the attendees will record words in their languages in order to feed the existing pronunciation free database.
The recording test will be done using the smartphones of the attendees.
Lingua Libre est un outil qui vise à faciliter l'enregistrer des langues. Au début, le développement a été supporté par Wikimedia France afin d'enregistrer les langues minoritaires de France. Une première version fonctionne déjà tandis qu'une nouvelle version, améliorant la première, est en cours de développement ; une version utilisable est prévue pour l'été 2018. L'outil sera présenté aux participants et ces derniers enregistreront des mots dans leur(s) langue(s) afin d'alimenter la base de données de prononciations libres actuelle.
Les enregistrements seront effectués à partir des ordiphones des participants et des animateurs de l'atelier.
