About 200 million women in the country are illiterate. But voice memo and image-sharing apps make it easier to connect, communicate, and run businesses.

This is exciting to hear about and sparked a lot of questions for me.

  • How many apps are usable by sub-literate people?
  • What open source tools can be useful for this population?
  • How would you design things differently if you meant for this to be your primary userbase? Does Whatsapp do this well?
  • Are there efforts to improve affordability / access (particularly for women) that people can help with from the US?
  • How many local languages have comprehensible text-to-speech?
