As the top online article author on the Internet with over a 7600 articles it has occurred to me that some people may not be able to read what I write. Why is this? Well in the United States of America 30% of our population over the age of 15 cannot read. These numbers are increasing due to the number of illegal immigrants entering our country. That is to say the percentage is not going down it is going up.
Luckily, like you I can read and I am learning how to write better. And like you indeed, I am well read and well observed and could easily dictate my articles off the top of my head with tons of examples, if the voice activated and speech the patient's software was a little better. In the very near future it will be. But consider this if an author can talk into a computer and dictate an article online, then why not save the audio file and upload that onto the Internet at a specially designed audio article submission web site.
The audio article submission web site would be similar to the current online article submission sites for written articles, which can be captured by copying and pasting Microsoft Word files into the submission box. It is very easy to upload audio files and if a web site allowed for this thin there would be audio articles online for all users to learn.
In other words we would be crossing the digital divide and not leaving any child behind. And with modified software, which is now being available it could be converted into other languages and if that means the whole world could learn what I had to learn the hard way. Wouldn't that be great? Consider this in 2006.
