This largely affect the digital inclusion equilibrium. There is an urgent need to digitally-document certain aspects of a language. This session will include demonstration of Open Educational Resources, Open Source software, and Open Datasets that are currently being developed to specifically document endangered/marginalized languages, create open multimedia archives, digital tools like spoken dictionary, text-to-speech and lead to brainstorming on the topics related to digital inclusion using open innovation and web literacy.

If your session requires additional materials or electronic equipment, please outline your needs.

@psubhashish Thank you for your patience! We had an extremely high volume of sessions for the digital inclusion space! We're excited to inform you that your session has been accepted to Mozfest. We hope you're able to join us in London from Oct 27-29. However, we cannot provide a travel stipend. Please let us know if you are able to secure alternative travel funding before the end of September.
Hi @kenyatta1 thanks for sharing the great news. When it is really thrilling for me to hear this news, it is also saddening to share that I would not be able to self-fund my travel. I would really appreciate if we can do it remotely because I am really keen on conducting the session.
