We just launched a new campaign for 8 Language Technology Kits on Indiegogo.
During our fieldwork around the world, we have made some of the first digital recordings of dozens of endangered languages, and we want to empower communities to do their own long-term documentation.
We have met many dedicated language activists who would really benefit from having access to computers and recording equipment so they can continue documenting their vanishing languages. We are raising funds for the equipment and training necessary for them to produce new media in their languages. This will help conserve and revitalize their languages, and also give them a presence online.
Our goal is to raise $24 000 for 8 kits over the next 72 days.
We encourage you to donate to this cause. Please help us spread the word on your social networks!
