Project Description

I have a directory of .swf files with mouseover sound. You can see and hear some of these .swf files at [url removed, login to view] - just mouse over to hear. I want to make a talking dictionary using these files, and adding thousands more. To do this I need a developer to create a search box on my site into which people type a word that they want to hear pronounced, and this opens a .swf file with the sound. If there's no file for that particular word, a page comes up saying 'sorry, we don't have that word, try another'. For the location of the search box, I'll probably want to put it on a new website rather than existing site at [url removed, login to view] . The new site will look a little like Google - it'll just say something like: "Enter the word you want to hear pronounced". So when somebody enters, for example, "hypothesis" into the search box and presses enter, it will open a file with a name like [url removed, login to view] . I'm sure this is very simple to do, but I don't know how it's done! The next stage will be to create thousands of .swf files using mp3 sound files which I will provide. For this stage I will want a quote per .swf file, but that comes later. Tim Bowyer

Some further clarification (March 14th):

1 The index page is probably going to be a Flash file embedded in html.

2 Search function should offer both 'click to search' and 'press enter to search'.

3 There should be a browse option in alphabetical order

4 The search will need to be fast enough to handle 10,000 entries or more.

5 Search should not be case-sensitive

6 Instead of 'sorry, that word is not yet included in the dictionary', it would be better if you can provide the nearest word available, in the format "Did you mean *arrive*?".

I hope this nails it down more.
