About Vokal Only 10% of India speaks English and 90% speak over 25 languages and 1000s of dialects. The internet has largely been in English. A good part of India is now getting internet connectivity thanks to cheap smartphones and Jio. The non-english speaking internet users will balloon to about 600 million users out of the total 750 million internet users in India by 2020. This will make the vernacular segment one of the largest segments in the world - almost 2x the size of the US population. The vernacular segment has very few products that they can use on the internet. Information and knowledge is one of the biggest needs of anyone that gets access to the internet. Most of the information and knowledge has been shared in English. Hence 90% of India remains underserved for their info and knowledge needs. Vokal is trying to solve this problem with its uniquely Indian solution. Vokal is a vernacular platform where some of the best brains of India share their knowledge with the common man in their own local language. They share this knowledge by answering questions of users over video & audio. Vokal solves the problem of access to info & knowledge for 600 million non-english speaking Indians. Users can speak out their question by voice and the speech to text converts their question to text. This text is then auto tagged and algorithmically matched to the most probable answerer who gives the response in voice / video. Vokal is working on some of the most interesting vernacular tech issues.
