Re: [libreoffice-marketing] Re: Funding Wishlist


Sorry, I forgot to add three more ways we can contribute to the ongoing marketing effort:

3. We have a good number of ORCA spoken tutorials to help on the topic of accessibility. The tutorial relevant to LibreOffice is http://www.che.iitb.ac.in/faculty/km/08-orca_word-processor.mp3. It is one of 10+ tutorials on ORCA. As this were made a few years ago, OO is explained. We are in the process of remaking these tutorials, as apparently, some things have changed in the way ORCA is distributed. When we make them again, we can explain LibreOffice instead. We have amongst our team Krishnakant Mane, a visually impaired FOSS expert, who worked closely with the ORCA team and developed these tutorials.

4. We can provide free dubbing rights to those who want to dub spoken tutorials on LibreOffice. We can train the interested people how to do the dubbing. We require, however, that the video is not changed and that the end users are not charged. We also give honorarium to anyone from anywhere who can help with the dubbing in India's 20+ official languages (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Languages_with_official_status_in_India). Interestingly, a few languages spoken in India are used in neighbouring countries also - Urdu: Pakistan, Nepali: Nepal, Bengali: Bangladesh, Tamil: Sri Lanka.

5. We can help train those who want to organise workshops using spoken tutorials, available at http://spoken-tutorial.org. This service is also offered free of cost.

Regards,

Kannan

As I don't know in what form additions or modifications are expected on this wiki page, I am writing to the list. As at present we have an Indian Government supported project to promote FOSS, we can contribute to the ongoing marketing effort in the following two ways:

1. Our artists can help create the artwork, required for banners, brochures, etc. We use GIMP. Because of the distances, however, it is not clear how effective this will be.

2. If ever there is a marketing effort by mailing CDs, we can participate in it by sending free CDs within India. Please note that many people in India do not have access to good bandwidth and hence depend on such offline promotional material. It will not, however, be possible for us to send the CDs overseas, although, it may be possible to send one or two bulk mailings.

Kannan

I will be adding the result of the other mailing lists in the next day or less.
