Geographic Travels Geo-Literacy Outreach Awards Submission: Voice Enabled Map Fonts

The second entry for the Geographic Travels Geo-Literacy Outreach Awards has been officially submitted.  Naveen Sidda, Javier Eced, and Dr. Javier Lopez of the University of Zaragoza have a proposal to create voice enabled map fonts for tourists and the illiterate.

Feel free to comment on the proposal and let the board know what you think!

And remember, you still have time to apply for the $500 in awards for promoting Geo-Literacy!

This is a really good innovative model which has huge applications in tourist information system. I too have experienced such problems when I go to non-English speaking cities. I really appreciate this proposal.

This is really good innovative proposal which has good application for an enhanced tourist information system. Still yet we do not have good information for tourists in this world.
