Making Wikipedia more accessible to people with lower literacy and vision impairments

About

Wikipedia is a source of genuine, neutral knowledge. 1 in every 4 Indians lack the ability to read text and therefore are unable to access this source of knowledge. VideoWiki makes Wikipedia more accessible by adding a visual and audio layer to Wikipedia, ensuring that in the future, the 'sum of all human knowledge' is not limited to just text. VideoWiki is currently working on building neutral, reliable, and verifiable videos in Indian languages, starting from Hindi.
