Common Voice هو مشروع يهدف لجعل تعريف الأصواف مفتوح و متاح للجميع .
لانشاء نظام يعتمد على الصوت المبرمجين بحاجة الى كمية ضخمة من بيانات الصوت. معظم بيانات الصوت التي تستخدمها الشركات الكبيرة غير متاحة لمعظم الناس . نحن في شركة موزيللا نعتقد أن امتلاك الأصوات من قبل جهة محددة يحد من الأبتكار .
مشروع Common Voice يسعى لجعل الأصوات متاحة للجميع ، يمكنك التبرع بصوتك و المساهمة معنا .
حتى تكون مجموعة البيانات الصوتية قابلة للأستخدام نحتاج على الأقل الى 2000 ساعة من تسجيل الأصوات التي تم التحقق منها مسجلة من على الأقل 1000 صوت مختلف .
تنوع الأصوات هو الحل الأساسي. التنوع على أساس الجنس، العمر، خلفية الأصوات ، اللهجات.
نحن نؤمن أننا نستطيع الحصول على تنوع الأصوات من خلال مشاركة المجتمعات التي تدعم موزيللا في العالم !
يمكنك المشاركة معنا بالتبرع بتسجيل 15 دقيقة من صوتك و كنوع من التشجيع سنقوم بدورنا بتزويدك بمقدمة عن علم البيانات و تعلّم الآلة .
سنقوم بفلسطين بتنظيم تجمع للتعريف بالمشروع و طريقة التبرع ، سيتم الأعلان عن التفاصيل لاحقاً .

تم أنجاز ورشة عمل مع مجموعة من أربع طلاب تتراوح أعمارهم من 12 الى 16 سنة في مركز Let’s code
لتعليم الطلاب مبادىء البرمجة و التفكير المنطقي .
قام الطلاب بالتعرف على بعض تطبيقات الواقع الافتراضي و قامو باستخدام Spoke composer
لتجميع محتوى ثلاثي الأبعاد في مشهد خاص بهم و نشره على Mozilla hubs.
Mozilla hubs هي عباره عن غرفة محادثة مبينية على الواقع الأفتراضي و Mozilla soke هو عبارة عن أداة تسمح للمستخدم بتجميع تصاميم ثلاثية الأبعاد من مصادر مختلفة مثل Sketch fab و Google poly لانشاء محتوى ثلاثي الأبعاد .
كما قام الطلاب برؤية نتائج عملهم على نظارة Occuls go باستخدام متصفح Firefox Reality المعد خصيصاً لنظارات الواقع الأفتراضي .
كانت مدة الورشة 3 ساعات تمكن خلالها الطلاب من بناء نماذج ثلاثية الأبعاد خاصة بهم و نشرها على Mozilla hubs

Saturday, February 16 , 2019 I gave a workshop about web virtual reality using A-frame.
The workshop was held in Let’s code center for teaching kids programing in Nablus – Palestine. It was attended by 12 schools students whose ages are between 10 and 16.
Students already have background about programing, but they never developed VR apps before and five of them never tried VR before.
The workshop was of three hours, we spent the first hour talking about Mozilla, Web, open source, the differences between webVR and VR native apps and the differences between AR , VR and MR.
We discussed the differences between 2D and 3D web apps and started with aframe what is it and why we use it .
The students were excited about trying simple codes, changing positions ,rotation and light values for each object using the visual inspector tool and then apply the changes to their code and see their code live on their phones.
At the end of the workshop, I introduced them to Firefox-reality and let them try it using Oculus go headset. They were so surprised about how real the VR experience was using Oculus.
In January 28th, Mozilla community in Palestine have created a small video in Arabic to participate in Firefox Fights For you campaign and introduce people that Firefox fights to protect its users privacy.
The following amazing people have participated in recording the video :
Haneen Sameeh Salameh (UX developer)
Dania Yaish (Service Manager at Call u )
Nadeen Kalboune (developer at Exalt software company)
Dr. Othman M. Othman (Assistant Professor of Computer Science at An-Najah National University)
