The Internet and Mobile Association of India [IAMAI] in its ongoing series of workshops on Universal Acceptance [UA] for Devanagari script is holding the next workshop of the series in Lucknow on 30 august ’19 at NIELIT, Lucknow Center, Vibhutikhand, Gomti Nagar, Lucknow. The campaign is supported by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology [MeitY].
Universal Acceptance is a fundamental requirement for the digital ecosystem that allows users to navigate entirely in their local language.
The objective of the workshops is to reach out to the Internet businesses, developers and startup community to create awareness about the criticality of Universal Acceptance and the technical solutions being developed and also to promote Indian languages over the Internet. The workshop will also have a seminar, a tutorial on Universal Acceptance coding tools, followed by a coding challenge in which local developers can compete.
This initiative is expected to facilitate the integration of Indian scripts on the World Wide Web. Accessibility of Local Indian language content over the internet will boost e-commerce and local businesses resulting in greater internet penetration and usage in the country.
IAMAI expressed that the responses from Raipur, Bhopal and Jaipur workshop from local developers, start-up and student community have been very astounding, and the association looks forward to stellar participation by startups, developers, coders and other stakeholders in the upcoming workshops as well.
