An idea worth spreading

As millions of people are being pulled out from the digital divide every year, the demand for local language contents are increasing manifolds. We need to create lots of translations using human intervention with the help of machine tools to address the situation. Another way to reach millions of uneducated people is to devise text to speech or create podcasts in local languages.

Citizen Media, , Translation, Music, Literature, Social media tools, Online activism
