* NEW TOOLS - Recording Phone Calls *

At last!

For years, people have been asking Transom for advice on recording over the
phone. Slowly, we've been acquiring phone interfaces and software tools
for Jeff Towne to review and incorporate in his primer, and it is finally
done. Jeff covers high and low tech options--analog phone couplers and
hybrids, digital hybrids, cell phone taps, computer-based telephony like
Skype, taping little mics to telephones, and instructions on configuring
"mix minus". Various hardware and software options are reviewed, with
audio samples. There are links to other resources. This is a really good
rundown. You can stop asking now. Drop by to tell us about your own tips
or ask questions.

Global Voices Online » Video: Community Radios Fill the ...
By Juliana Rincón Parra

In a highly globalized and digitalized world, sometimes we may forget that
in many regions of the world, not even electricity is available, and the
possibility of using internet as an alternative information source is
still a distant dream. It is in locations like Guatemala, Chad and India
that community radio rises as the alternative for native communities to
speak about their concerns, hear news and stories, receive information and
all this in their native languages.

In Guatemala, Proyecto Suri [es] has been giving a community radio
workshop to the CUC, the Peasant Unity Committee [es], so they can train
different members of indigenous communities in the techniques to produce
radio shows geared specifically to their needs of information. In a
country where there are 54 living languages [en], there are places where
Spanish, the official language in Guatemala, is not spoken, or when it is,
it is spoken as a second language. Proyecto Suri writes about how
community radios have assisted in keeping these languages alive


Countries:
India, Chad, Guatemala
Topics:
Ideas, Arts & Culture, Development, Refugees, Entertainment
Languages:
Spanish, English
