Voice (gnome-voice) 0.2.0 with Streaming and Voice Recording into {G_USER_DIRECTORY_MUSIC}/GNOME.[ogg,voice]

The tenth stable Voice (gnome-voice) 0.2.0 release is available at https://download.gnome.org/sources/gnome-voice/0.2/gnome-voice-0.2.0.tar.xz with Voicegram streaming and recording in Ogg Vorbis.

Voice is a new Public Voice Communication Software being built on GNOME 43.

Voice will let you listen to and share short, personal and enjoyable Voicegrams via electronic mail and on the World Wide Web by GNOME executives, employees and volunteers. Xiph.org Ogg Vorbis is a patent-free audio codec that more and more Free Software programs, including GNOME Voice (https://www.gnomevoice.org/) have implemented, so that you can listen to Voicegram recordings with good/fair recording quality by accessing the Voicegram file $HOME/Music/GNOME.[ogg,voice] in the G_USER_DIRECTORY_MUSIC folder in Evolution 3.45 or Nautilus.

Currently it records sound waves from the live microphone into $HOME/Music/GNOME.[ogg,voice] (or $HOME/Musikk/GNOME.[ogg,voice] on Norwegian bokmål systems) and plays back an audio stream from http://api.perceptron.stream:8000/56.ogg simultaneously on GNOME 43.

The tenth Voice 0.2.0 release with live microphone recording into $HOME/Music/GNOME.ogg and a concert experience with Sondre Lerche (Honolulu, Hawaii) and presenter Neil McGovern (Executive Director, GNOME Foundation) is available from https://download.gnome.org/sources/gnome-voice/0.2/gnome-voice-0.2.0.tar.xz

Gingerblue 6.2.0 for musicians who compose, record, and share original music in Evolution

You can try Gingerblue 6.2.0 with Evolution email attaching in the Broadcast step in the GTK+/GNOME wizard available from https://www.gingerblue.org/ and https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Gingerblue

Gingerblue 6.2.0 provides a link in the final GtkAssistant Broadcast page that launch Evolution or another email program that supports mailto:?attachment=localOggVorbisRecording.ogg application handler in GNOME 43. The syntax mailto:?attachment is not yet a RFC and it
is only supported by Evolution 3.44 as far as I have tested, the default email client on GNOME 43.

With a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB Sound Card and a AKG 3000b large diagraph microphone and a XLR microphone cable, it is possible to record and email voice messages and hopefully some music as part of my studies as Location Recording student at Norwegian Academy of Music and Bachelor student in Programming at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) from GNOME 42.

You can hear a voice recording of my voice recorded with Gingerblue 6.2.0 at my blog at https://blog.oleaamot.no/ with examples of my music recorded with Gingerblue.
