Audiopedia App

Growth in smartphone adoption in many developing countries will be much more aggressive than anything seen in the developed world over the last few years. During the next 2 years 1.6 billion smartphone connections will be added to the current base in the developing world. India will lead the growth with around 350 million net smartphone additions.

This is why we set up an innovative and open source web application for our Audiopedia contents: The Audiopedia App. While the user interface is simple enough for an illiterate person it also allows a differentiate access. The complete audio contents (12 hours of spoken text) are currently available in 7 languages: Swahili, French, Spanish, Portuguese, English, Indonesian and Chinese.
