The Voicegram Recording Ogg Vorbis [.ogg] and XML file [.voice] is created in G_USER_DIRECTORY_MUSIC (usually $HOME/Music/GNOME.ogg and $HOME/Music/GNOME.voice on American English systems) with g_get_real_name():

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<voice version="1.6.0">
  <station name="Sondre Lerche" uri="">
    <location lat="37.7808297" lon="-122.3983918">San Francisco, California</loc

You’ll find the recorded Ogg Vorbis audio files along with the Voicegram Recording XML files in g_get_user_special_dir(G_USER_DIRECTORY_MUSIC) (usually $HOME/Music/) on GNOME 45 systems configured in the American English language.

The audio signals recorded with Voice version 1.6.0 have usually a sample rate of 44,100 Hz and are stored in the $HOME/Music/GNOME.ogg and $HOME/Music/GNOME.voice files for the label “GNOME”.

It is possible to configure multiple Voice listening streams with for example <stream></stream> in $PREFIX/share/gnome-voice.xml. Your private Voice files is never shared with the public and can be kept private unless you manually share, upload or email the $HOME/Music/GNOME.ogg or $HOME/Music/GNOME.voice files or install a public web server such as Apache on your computer and copy $HOME/Music/GNOME.voice to $HOME/public_html/GNOME.voice in your public_html/ home directory on the public Apache web server.

Enjoy Voice 1.6 developments for the new, upcoming GNOME 45 Desktop Platform.

Enjoy Voice,
Ole Kristian
