Description of the tool/project
Allows automatic reading aloud of article content, for the supported languages (ar, en, sv).
Description of how the tool will be used at WMF
Presently the goal is to push it to the beta cluster for testing and exploration, then we'll hopefully push it (as a beta feature) to ar., en., sv.wikipedia.
- Mishkal is a Python 2.7-service. Python 3.8 version is available, but only 3.7 is supported by the WMF base Docker images. Will probably have to wait for the release of Debian Bullseye or build our own Docker image without using Blubber in order to get passed this.
