For those who don't know arabic, Mr.Khayaat offered to record ogg files
for libquran for the reciter (Mohammed Khayaat) who is his father and
to provide a font for rendering the Qur'an.
He asked about the specifications and tools neededto record the files.
Isam mentioned the 'speex' project (http://www.speex.org):
The Speex project aims to build a patent-free, Open Source/Free
Software voice codec. Unlike other codecs like MP3 and Ogg Vorbis,
Speex is designed to compress voice at low bitrates in the
8-32 kbps/channel range. Possible applications include VoIP, internet
audio streaming, archiving of speech data (e.g. voice mail), and
I tested it and found that it's ideal for the Qura'n project.
Now my idea is to use the speex codec rather than the vorbis
codec, I looked at the speex codec api, it's more complicated than
the vorbis codec api, but the gain worths it!
I would like to hear your opinion before I make that move Mr.Damt.
