[liberationtech] Launching Poorman's Reader

Hello Everyone -

We are excited to launch first version of the Poorman's Reader, an android
app which enables reading-illiterates understand written text. It
automatically registers users without requiring any signup/login and
provides a 2-click interface to let its users upload images of documents
such as brochures, handbills, newspapers etc.

There is also an interface for the volunteer translators to view the
uploaded image(s) and simultaneously record its audio translation(s). Each
application user is notified as soon as the audio recording (for the
submitted image) is available for listening.

The app requires an internet connection; however, it has been tested to
work responsively on a 2.5G(GPRS) connection. To learn more, please
download the app from google playstore:

We look forward to hearing your valuable feedback.
