Kickstarter Launched: Choose Your Reading and Pronunciation Adventure!

An expert Android programmer named Guillem Perez wanted to help with the Pronunciation Evaluation project for the Google Summer of Code, but was too late to apply by the deadline. Due to that and the continuing need for funds to collect exemplar pronunciations and produce large quantities of high quality instructional content and graphics, we have launched a Kickstarter project: Choose Your Reading and Pronunciation Adventure.

Thanks to Google and the CMU Sphinx organization's generous sponsorship, we only need to raise less than half of the previous fundraising goal. The first two hours of the Kickstarter's launch already raised $150 in pledges.

Please keep the momentum going by pledging generously and spreading the word far and wide.  Thank you!
