Ukrainian Folklore Audio
By Natalie Kononenko
Ukrainian Folklore Audio is a website that relies on crowdsourcing and allows the public to hear songs, stories, and beliefs recorded in Ukraine and among the Ukrainian diaspora of Kazakhstan. Crowdsourcing of field recordings engages the public transcribing and translating audio files. Crowdsourcing also benefits the researcher by allowing observation of public reaction to heritage texts that bear intense emotional significance. Thus, crowdsourcing allows observation of real responses and provides information about heritage.
