3. You can literally speak up in your own voice and have that audio file 
podcasted at our site. How?

There are 2 simple ways.

A. You can call our Yahoo or Skype ID. If you're using YAHOO MESSENGER or 
SKYPE, please add our contact ID : telecentres_hotline at your list.

Once you add this contact, you can double click the contact (even if this 
is offline) and can click to CALL. After 4-5 rings, you will be connected 
to our voice mail box, where you can leave your story for us. In Yahoo you 
will get 2 minutes and in Skype you will get 10 minutes to record your 
voices but if you think this time limit is not sufficient, then please feel 
free to leave another message. Obviously you'd need a microphone to record 
your voices.

We'd strongly recommend that you give us a brief introduction of yourself, 
your location and the telecentre/network of telecentres that you'd be 
talking about. If you have problem, please write us at: 
kate at takingitglobal.org or psarker at idrc.ca or cbure at idrc.ca


B. You can simply record your voice in any audio device and can send it to 
us. You can use a microphone or any other recording tool to record your 
voices, save it and send it to us. You probably would need a software to 
capture your voice. Usually Windows system come with SOUND RECORDER but you 
can use any other audio editing software for that. For instructions on how 
to record your voice, please visit these resources (these are not our 
resources) on the web:


Best wishes and we look forward to hearing your interesting responses on 
your telecentre experiences!
