How to make a pronunciation dictionary for Goldendict

Postby quanglamle213 » Tue Feb 18, 2014 2:56 pm

Hello.
I have a bunch of pronunciation sound files in English but I can't find the propriate dictionary files go with them. For example I have a zip file contain files such as
z_friend_us_1.wav, z_country_us_1.wav, those are the sound of words but I there is no dictionary file go with them. How can I create a dictionary file link to the sound files so that I can use them as the English dictionary pronunciation. I've read that we can create a sound folder and put all the sounds there and add to Goldendict but the problem occurred is the number of files are too large that cannot stored in a folder so that I cannot use the sound files as sound dir in Goldendict. I want to write a Lingvo DSL dictionary to point all the entries to the pronunciation sound files but when I create entries like:
Seven-Up
[s]z_seven-up__us_1.wav[/s]
, Goldendict cannot understand and work correctly. All the wav files are in one zip file. How can I do this, make a dsl dictionary file point to all the sound in the zip file? Please give help to me.
Thanks.

You just can to rename "your_archive.zip" to "your_archive.zips". GD handle such archives similar sound directories or Linvo .lsa from version 1.0.1-333.

I did follow your suggestion but not success. I have Cambridge Advanced Learners Dictionary 3rd with sound with files as En-En_Cambridge Advanced Learners Dictionary_abrv.dsl, En-En_Cambridge Advanced Learners Dictionary.dsl.dz and En-En_Cambridge Advanced Learners Dictionary.dsl.files.zip. I wonder how they used the sound files in the zip file En-En_Cambridge Advanced Learners Dictionary.dsl.files.zip for the dictionary. Could you help by telling me. Thank you.

To use resource files from zip archive this archive must be named as main dictionary file with adding ".files.zip". For example, if your dictionary file named "dictionary.dsl", resource file must be named as "dictionary.dsl.files.zip".

The size of the zip file is 177 MB, the number of audio files in the zip file is 58686 files. I can't extract them to one folder. I want to use the zip file as the way you say, use a dsl dictionary file and rename the audio file to dictionary.dsl.files.zip. Do you know how to do this.

Hi! I need to do the same.. extracting all the files in the directory of the dictionary works, but it's not a solution..you can't move 70.000 files around. They need to stay zipped. But the .zips solution seems not to work. Any idea how to proceed?
