On the upload page, paste the following template, and fill in the appropriate information.

{{Spoken article entry

{{GFDL}} <!-- This is the license tag.  Please leave the license selector blank. -->
  • title refers to the title of the actual article.
  • time is the length of time in minutes and seconds of the article, for example: 12:34
  • user_name is the name of the user who read/uploaded the file, for example: Willmcw
  • date is the date the article was recorded on.
  • link_to_recorded_version should be a link to the revision that was read, for example: 2005-04-18
  • accent is the regional accent of the reader. See Regional accents of English speakers for the possibilities.
  • In addition, if the recording is broken up into a number of parts, you need to add a line or two to let listeners navigate to:
a) the first recorded part of the article, in case they start somewhere in the middle, and
b) the next recorded part of the article, once they've listened to the current part.
So the following should be added just below the "|accent=" line:
  • For each part except the first (there's no need for the first file to link to itself), add "|first_part=file_name_of_part_1.ogg".
  • For each part except the last (since there would be no "next file" after the last), add "|next_part=file_name_of_next_part.ogg".

If you encounter a file size warning, ignore it. Pretty much any Spoken Wikipedia article will be more than 100kb in size. That's the nature of our work.

The current hard upload limit on WikiFur is around 10MiB. So you'll need to split your file into multiple parts if it is larger than that.
