Did you know that Mozilla is collecting a public domain dataset of annotated speech? This will help develop open source voice-controlled programs. The Common Voice project still needs volunteers both to donate their voice, and to validate other people's recordings.
I just validated a bunch of recordings (English and German) and am happy to report that there are now quite a few female speakers donating.
