Before launching a publicly accessible demo of Wikispeech (player) (T151786) it would be prudent to have thought about:
The main purpose of the demo:
- If feedback: Which, how to collect, plan for using the results.
Which is the target audience?
- Different background info may be needed. May have to set up an page on the demo wiki explaining functions and what is yet to come.
- For Stage 1 the explicit goal is to ensure that the installation (extension + TTS server) works.
- For Stage 2 the explicit goal is to get the active project participants to try it out.
- Any feedback collected will be informal.
- It will also be a limited test of scalability.
- For Stage 3 the focus group are disability organisations and a smaller group of Wikimedians who are already familiar with the project.
- This stage will need planing with regards to feedback collection.
- We need to evaluate which featured are needed before this stage.
- An in person event for the Wikimedians might be desirable.
- For Stage 4 the target group is Wikimedians in general to provide broader feedback.
- Background information on Wikispeech needs to be created.
- Wikimedian specific features need to be identified.
- Stage 5 would be launching this as a beta function.
- This needs a full security and performance review.
- i18n must be handled by translatewiki.net.
- This will likely require prior staging on the Beta cluster.
Stage 2 can be started as soon as Stage 1 is running satisfactorily.
Between stage 2 and stage 3 there will most likely be a longer gap as necessary features are developed.
Between stage 3 and stage 4 ther will most likely be another gap as feedback from stage 3 is implemented along with any features which Wikimedians might care about but previous users would not.
