In this Information Age, Internet access should be a “right” for everyone. Unfortunately, only a small fraction of the world population is served today mainly because of:
  1. Lack of computer or computer skills
  2. Access through a personal device is difficult, visual, expensive and not usable by many people who do not know how to read or write.
The situation in Zambia is even worse – only 1% population has some access to the Internet and with limited speed. With the coming of Voice/Audio Internet, it seems our situation is bound to improve - provided the technology is adopted of course. Audio Internet makes Internet available to everyone by using the most natural user interface, voice and the most ubiquitous device, a simple phone without using a computer.

Using netECHO® Voice Internet Technology, people can access the Internet by just calling a phone number and then talking and listening to the Internet. One can surf any website, search any word(s), send /receive email, conduct e-commerce and more.  In addition, voice portal features, such as news, business and trade information, weather and directions can be accessed. It also supports streaming audio, allowing anyone to listen to Internet radios & podcasts.

Voice Internet is no doubt revolutionary as it has been proven to be very useful to many “Digital Divided” – the elderly, visually impaired, blind, dyslexic, illiterate (and other types of disabilities), and highly mobile people. With many people having access to the largest source of information, levels of innovation, generation of business ideas, and entrepreneurship in general are sure to soar.
