Frequently asked questions


What is Common Voice?

Common Voice is Mozilla's initiative to help teach machines how real people speak.
You can read more on the official website.

How to contact the developer?

You can contact the developer on Telegram or Riot @Sav22999, in English or Italian. Also you can join the app support Telegram group.

How to contribute to the app?

You can report bugs, suggest new features or translate the app.
You can review the app on Google Play or, if you want to support the developer, you can "buy him a coffee" on LiberaPay, PayPal or Ko-fi.

How to translate the app?

You can translate the app easily on Crowdin. Just choose your language and translate the app!
If your language is not listed, please open an issue on GitHub.

Why does the developer need app statistics?

I need the app statistics just to know how many people use the app each day.
That way I can dedicate more or less time between this project and other projects, depending on how useful the project is to the community.

Does app statistics respect my privacy?

The statistics are absolutely safe and anonymous. The app does not use any external libraries for collecting any data. A request is sent to my server, which triggers updates of counters. No personal data is ever sent, so there is nothing to store. Also see the answer for the previous question. You can see precisely what information is collected by the app-statistics and generic-statistics options by reading the details in PRIVACY.md file on GitHub.
Feel free to read the source code if you have any doubts. :)

Is the app official?

The app is not developed by Mozilla, it's developed by Saverio Morelli.
I develop the app just to improve the Common Voice project, without any earnings. You can support my work buying me a coffee on LiberaPay, PayPal or Ko-fi.

Where can I see app statistics?

The app statistics are published on my website where there is also graph and other details, or you can see them in the app, in the Dashboard section.
You can disable statistics in Settings 🠊 Advanced. Unless absolutely necessary, please leave them turned on, I don't collect your personal data! Please see answer to question Does app statistics respect my privacy?.

Why is the app not frequently updated on F-Droid?

F-Droid is a store managed by volunteers, so the updates can take a few days or weeks to arrive.
If you prefer, you can enable the Check for updates, so that you can be notified when there is a new version of the app, and you can download it from GitHub.
You can enable this feature in Settings 🠊 Other.

Where can I download the app officially?

The app is published (and updated) officially on Google Play, F-Droid, Huawei AppGallery, Amazon AppStore and GitHub.
The developer advises to use the Google Play, F-Droid or GitHub editions.

Why should I use the app instead of the website?

The main goal of the app is to improve the user experience (UX) on mobile devices, leading to higher efficiency/more/better quality contributions to the Common Voice Project.
It's a native app for Android, and it has many features that the website can not provide, such as Dark mode, Offline mode, etc.

How do I disable notifications?

Since release 2.4, CV Project includes notifications.
You can disable Generic notifications or Daily goal notifications in Settings 🠊 Other.

What is the Offline mode?

The Offline mode, if enabled, permits you to contribute to Common Voice without constantly being connected to WiFi or mobile data.

How can I customise gestures?

You can Customise gestures for both the Speak and Listen screens in Settings 🠊 Customise gestures.

Is the app open-source?

The app and its dependencies are completely open-source. You can find the source code on GitHub. In fact the app is also published on F-Droid!

If you have issues with the official Common Voice website, please report them on Mozilla Discourse forums or GitHub repository so that Mozilla can fix them.
