Sharing stories across the digital divide...

...back. Cameraphones and digital library software will be used to support the capture and sharing of this information in the form of a short audiovisual story. We use the word story to refer to a spoken language report, illustrated with still or moving images. By focussing on audiovisual information of this kind, we hope to give a stronger voice and role to people who cannot read and write, or use the internet to record and access textual information. The same information will be also made available in translated form to UK engineers and designers to understand the needs of people from a different culture. In this way we aim to re-conceptualise internet content at a local level, making it more TV than PC-centric, and to test its value across local and global divides.
