WHOVOX is a free online game intended to be a fun listening challenge where a player tests their ear to determine who is speaking by listening to the sound of someone's voice. It's a fun and free game that is sometimes easy and sometimes quite challenging!
Where Did the Idea for WHOVOX Come From?
The idea for the game came from watching the great TV show The Simpsons. The Simpsons often features one or more guest celebrity voices in any given episode. The guest voice often plays a new character in the episode and is not easy to identify.
The creators of WHOVOX enjoyed trying to guess who the special guest voices were during the show and seeing if their guess was correct when the end credits are shown. Thus the idea for WHOVOX was born.
How Was WHOVOX Made?
The voice audio clips used in the game are not from any copyrighted work (television show, movie, song, etc.) Each voice clip is taken from an interview found on the web and has no context as to what the person is actually talking about. The audio clip is also often not linear, meaning they are often made up of several separate phrases and in a changed order.
The pictures used for each voice entry are for the most part candid shots found from web searches, posed or copyrighted pictures are not used.
What Are the Other Pages of the Site?
The site navigation is not easily scanned. Many navigation actions result from scripts or functions.
The current page (home page) is the where a player begins a game. The page displays how many games have been completed and how many voice questions are in the voice question database. When the page loads an animation is played where the elements of the screen fade in one at a time. The play screen is where all the fun is, but a game must start at the home page. The score page is visited only after all twelve voices have been answered and the game is completed. There are also links to the Hall of Fame, instructions on How to Play, and a Contact form. The score page is visited only after all twelve voices have been answered and the game is completed.
