Famous people of the internet — and the world at large — are being asked to record their voice for digital archiving as part of a year-old Wikipedia project. That effort, led by Wikipedia contributor Andy Mabbett, began in late-2012 and is now getting off the ground with recordings by British celebrity Stephen Fry and astronaut Charlie Duke. The program asks for anyone with their own Wikipedia entry to record a short snippet (around 10 seconds) thats attached to the page with its own audio transcription. Some of those subjects may have been dead for years, making it a direct way to archive studio-quality versions of their voice.
