Setting up Audio in FLEx 8.3
Set up two writing systems for the vernacular language in FLEx, the first one for the vernacular script and the second one for the vernacular audio.
Then you may link audio files to any vernacular field, most frequently the lexeme form and example sentence. If you use the record feature in FLEx, all sound files will be in .wav format and will need to be converted to .mp3 format and re-linked before uploading to Webonary. It is a good idea to make a backup of the AudioVisual folder before re-linking, as the re-linking process deletes the .wav file.
Configure Dictionary View
In Tools -> Configure -> Dictionary… make sure the Audio Writing System under Headword and Example is checked so that the audio icon shows in the configured dictionary view and the audio files get uploaded.
Upload to Webonary
Using the Upload to Webonary feature in FLEx, will automatically upload the audio files and display an audio icon
Display Sound Files in Webonary
For displaying the mp3 files we use UbaPlayer. It uses HTML5 and there is a Flash fallback for older browsers. It will display a small player button after your entry.
Setting up Audio in FLEx 9
The setup is the same for FLEx 9 as FLEx 8.3, except that the Upload to Webonary process takes care of the conversion from wav file format to mp3 file format and re-linking for Webonary display.
