The website is working alongside the BBC to collect voice recordings of notable figures for their Wikipedia profile pages.
Wikipedia has launched its Wikipedia Voice Intro Project (WikiVIP), a way for future generations to hear the voices of notable individuals such as celebrities and scientists.
The WikiVIP adds a 10 second voice recording of notable individuals to their Wikipedia biographies. This will enable future generations to hear what they sounded like, including people who are less likely to have appeared on television.
The BBC is working alongside Wikipedia on the WikiVIP by providing recordings from the BBC archives. Volunteers have identified over 300 clips featuring notable individuals which are currently being processed and uploaded to Wikipedia articles.
