Audio Snippets

Would it be reasonable to add the capability of small audio snippets to the Chinese Language wiki?

The feature might take this form:

  1. Snippets only (no more than 30 seconds long)
  2. Able to be embedded similar to image uploads


  • Probably would require an audio recording feature to be efficient


  • For a language wiki, the ability to hear samples of native speech seems to be a no-brainer to me.

Why here:

Other websites provide audio content but no context. A language wiki seems ideal to house this material as it is highly pertinent to every visitor.


The need to not pollute the wiki with junk.

Argument in favour:

I would argue that the drawbacks are handled using current community mechanism. Technical limitations should be nil as the technology to produce the feature set already exists (see italki.com for example).
